Dinner Rolls
To make rolls simply pull off enough dough to form the size roll you want.   
(Small rolls are great to serve along with a meal. Make larger rolls and use as sandwich buns, hamburger buns, or for amazing heart sloppy joe buns.)
Shape into smooth balls and place on greased baking sheet.
Let rise until double. 
Brush with melted butter and bake at 350 until rolls are brown on top. 
(Time will depend on how large your rolls are)
Take out and brush again with butter. 
Enjoy!!
