These easy soft yeast rolls can be made ahead and refrigerated until you are ready to bake and serve. This recipe result in tender, fluffy, chewy and buttery rolls easy enough for any day of the week and special enough for holiday gatherings!
Today we are going to make a rich bread. Rich breads include more liquid and fat, usually from eggs, butter, and/or oil. Rich breads are more tender, but this also means that the dough is a little trickier to handle.
The dough tends to be softer and stickier and this tends to pull people into adding more flour to the dough to make it easier to handle. Try to avoid this! You want a high fat to flour ratio to keep the bread tender and soft.
If you have a stand mixer, this dough can easily be mixed with the dough hook. But I actually prefer to knead bread dough by hand. It is therapeutic for me and I like to get a feel for the dough to know when it is ready.
It is up to you how you want to knead the bread, but really try to avoid adding more flour than necessary.
