“When organizing parties, a typical conversation revolves around what to serve and who brings what. Most people are hesitant to make bread, so I always volunteer to bring the rolls. Here’s the recipe I turn to again and again. This easy-to-handle dough produces soft, fragrant, professional-looking rolls that can be made one day, shaped the next, and baked the next-who could ask for better? The rolls nestle together in the pan as they rise and bake, and easily pull apart after they’re baked. Don’t overlook the flavor variations. They pair beautifully with any meal.
