Yummy White Roll Recipe

This has been my favorite basic white roll recipe for a few years now. The evaporated milk and potato flakes give them a little something extra and people are always asking for the recipe. I usually just form them into balls and make regular dinner rolls, but this time I made them into crescents, just for fun. They are amazing warm from the oven with butter and homemade jam!

    On your Yummy white rolls, how much evaporated milk do you use. Another question is that I use yeast from a jar. (Quick rising) Should I reduce the amount of yeast to 1 T. 1/2 t. for this?

    I did 6 cups of flour and it was too soft to handle HELP

  3. Just keep adding flour a little bit at a time till your dough isn’t sticky anymore. With yeast breads, the flour is never an exact measurement, so it’s fine to add more or less than the recipe states. Good luck!
