I promise that these dinner rolls are the softest pillowy dinner rolls ever. I love making homemade dinner rolls because it’s made with all natural ingredients. Ingredients that we can actually pronounce. Ok maybe I’m exaggerating but ingredients that are in our everyday vocabulary. These are made with real butter, whole milk, etc. They’re obviously destined for greatness. You can serve these with a little butter with dinner or even some jam for breakfast.
