Heavenly One Hour Dinner Rolls that are so light & fluffy. Delicious & buttery, they’re perfect for holidays but easy enough for every night of the week.
There are few things in this world I love more than a soft & fluffy dinner roll all smothered in butter. I really love bread & having homemade dinner rolls with our meal just makes me grin from ear to ear. I especially love it when the recipe comes together in an hour or less.
Because let’s be honest, if it takes too long then it’s really only suitable for a large planned event. Who has time to spend hours making rolls for a regular weeknight dinner? I sure don’t. I usually make my “go-to” One-Hour Dinner Rolls that are a favorite here.
But over Thanksgiving, I decided to change things up with this recipe & wow, it sure gives my original recipe a run for its money.

So this past Thanksgiving we were spending the day with our next-door neighbors. I knew we would have a large crowd & my usual recipe makes about 20 rolls.
So I knew I had to either make about 3 batches to make sure we had enough or come up with a different recipe that would simplify things.
The day before Thanksgiving I decided to test recipes. I ended up with nearly 60 rolls – perfect for the holiday. But I wanted to make them fresh for the holiday – so I was passing out the test batch to everyone around.
I made another batch of 54 for us all to enjoy on the holiday. But I figured that you probably don’t need 54 rolls on a normal day any more than I do.
So I’m sharing a small batch version here for 18. This recipe easily doubles & triples depending on your needs. So you could make 18, 36 or 54 & they will still come out AWESOME!.
Heavenly One Hour Dinner Rolls
Oh & that is no joke- they really do take just one hour. The process is incredibly simple. You will not be disappointed. I promise! So simple that I can whip up a batch with our dinner at least once a week. I sometimes just make the triple batch & we have them all week long. These really are Heavenly One Hour Dinner Rolls.

Those sound yummy and so easy to do! Pinned.
These sound great but is the 1 cup of melted butter just for brushing on the rolls or is it added to the dough?
Gina Kleinworth says
Thanks for your question – I can see how that would be confusing. I have updated the recipe to show that it is the 1/4 cup butter that goes in the dough & the 1 cup of butter that is melted is for brushing later. You could probably get away with less for the brushing, but I always like to start out with enough.
