Perfectly Easy Dinner Rolls
1 cup warm water (105 F to 115 F)
2 (1/4 ounce) packages active dry yeast (4 1/2 teaspoons)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
4 -4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
additional melted butter (optional)
Combine the warm water and yeast in a large bowl. Let the mixture stand until yeast is foamy, about 5 minutes. Stir in butter, sugar, eggs and salt. Beat in flour, 1 cup at a time, until dough is too stiff to mix with a spoon (some flour may not be needed). Place in a greased bowl cover and refrigerate 2 hours or up to 4 days. Grease one 9 x 13 baking pans. Turn the chilled dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide dough into 24 equal-size pieces. Roll each piece into a smooth round ball; place balls in even rows in the prepared pan. Cover and let dough balls rise until double in volume, about 1 hour. Preheat oven to 375°F Bake until rolls are golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Brush warm rolls with melted butter, if desired. Break rolls apart to serve.
