Buttermilk Dinner Rolls
Homemade, Soft, Fluffy Buttermilk Dinner Rolls that will be perfect drenched in butter, to use for sopping up juices, or dipping in your soups. I made these to go with my Chicken and Dumplings and they were perfect. I had mine both drenched in butter and I dipped it in my chicken and dumplings.
Making rolls homemade can be a task, but so worth it. I usually like shortcuts, but, sometimes the satisfaction of making your own food and it turning out so good, is very gratifying. You’ll see that I don’t always shortcut it, but they are still nice to have, those shortcuts.
This recipe makes a double batch, or one great big huge batch. You could use only half of it one night and then refrigerate the leftover dough for the next meal. I split mine and came up with 24 rolls with the first half. Use the dough within one week from making it.
What happens if you add too much sugar to yeast?
Too much sugar in dough can slow down or even inhibit (stop) yeast activity. Need more information about making breads and using yeast, go check out Breadopedia.

- Dissolve the yeast in water. Set aside.

- Using a pastry blender (or cutter), cut the shortening into the flour. Should look like little chunks throughout. Add the buttermilk and yeast mixture and stir/mix with a wooden spoon until the dough sticks together.
