You can easily mix your dough by hand if you don’t have a food processor. If you’re mixing by hand, spray your hands with non stick spray to make the job easier. You’ll want to use that trick after the dough rises when you are shaping into rolls.
Allow the dough to rise to just about double in size. Then shape into rolls and allow to rise again.
It doesn’t take quite as long for the rolls to rise as it does for the dough to rise. There are factors which will affect how long it takes for dough to rise. You can speed up the process a bit by sitting it under a light such as on the stovetop with the light on.
Brush the tops with melted butter when your rolls are fresh from the oven. If you really want a treat, serve our Homemade Italian Butter with your hot rolls.
