Soft Dinner Rolls Recipe:
Yields 16 dinner rolls

Ingredients:

9 oz. lukewarm water
12 ¾ oz. all-purpose flour
1 ¾ tsp. instant yeast
1 ¼ tsp. salt
1 ¼ oz. sugar

Method:
1. In the bowl of a standing mixer, combine the nonfat dry milk and water.
2. Add in remaining ingredients and mix to combine.
3. Knead by machine (use dough hook) or remove dough from mixer and knead by hand until the dough is soft and smooth.
4. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rise for an hour.
5. Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled work surface. Weigh and scale the dough into 16 pieces. Shape into small rounds by cupping the dough in your hand and rolling it on the table surface.
6. Let the rolls rise until almost double in size.
7. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
