1. Classic dinner rolls

Who doesn't like a soft and fluffy classic dinner roll to be an addition to their table? Most of the rolls use all-purpose flour, which is not considered suitable for your body, so whole wheat or multi-grain flour is a great alternative. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 2-1/4 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup powdered nondairy creamer
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 6-7 cups whole wheat or multi-grain flour

Recipe:

  • Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large mixing dish. Add 5 cups flour, sugar, shortening, creamer, and salt to the mix and blend until completely smooth.
  • Add the remaining flour to the mixture until a soft and sticky dough is formed.
