These soft, fluffy Perfect Dinner Rolls make the perfect addition to your holiday feast!
Every year during the holidays we eagerly anticipate these dinner rolls, which have been lovingly nick-named “Sister Friddle Rolls.” Ok let me explain; for many years my mother in law and one of her best friends have traded rolls for dessert at Thanksgiving and Christmas. It’s there brilliant way of getting two things everyone will love without having to make two recipes, how genius is that? I’ve had this recipe tucked away since my very first Thanksgiving with my husband and his family, so I am pretty psyched to share it will you all today!
They take a little effort and a bit of patience to make, but these soft, fluffy Dinner Rolls make the perfect addition to any meal and particularly your upcoming holiday feast. Since I am a total bread fanatic, I was happy to make a batch of them for our Thanksgiving dinner. I definitely foresee making a double batch again at Christmas in a few weeks.
Recipes like these rolls are one of my favorite things about the holidays. I love sharing food with my family and friends, for me being able to do something I love and share it with those I care most about is what this time of year is all about!

Thank you Carrie.

Nancy P.@thebittersideofsweet says
I love how you made your own rolls. When our whole family gets together, the one thing we make sure we do not run out of is bread! These look great!
Our family is the same way Nancy, bread is king at a meal.
Tried them tonight. The dough is awesome but forming rolls is next to impossible! The butter is coming out and rolls don’t stay together.
Since I did like the dough itself, I will probably use the classic croissant approach next time. Much easier!
I am sorry you had trouble rolling them, I would definitely just form them however you find easiest, there’s no wrong way. I’m glad you enjoyed them Tatyana!
I will take a good (by good I mean soft and fluffy and beautiful) rolls any time with any meal. #thankyouverymuch 🙂
Thank you Shinee, you’ll love these!
