- Be sure to measure out the flour correctly. Scoop the flour into the measuring cup with a spoon.
- Sift the flour once measured out. This will ensure there are no lumps in the flour and the flour becomes lighter and easier to work with.
- Best way to get even sized rolls is to roll out the dough and cut it in half. Then cut each half into twelve parts.
- For the yeast to activate properly, be sure the milk/water mixture is warm, not HOT, reading about 110°F.
- When the dough is rising, keep it covered and in a warm area.
- Allow the dinner rolls to cool for a few minutes before generously coating them with butter.
