Perfectly Easy Dinner Rolls

1 cup warm water
4 ½ tsp active dry yeast
½ cup butter, melted
½ cup sugar
3 eggs
tsp salt
4 – 4 ½ cups flour
Additional melted butter (optional)

Combine the warm water and yeast in a large bowl. Let the mixture stand until yeast is foamy, about 5 minutes. Stir in butter, sugar, eggs, and salt. Beat in flour, 1 cup at a time, until dough is too stiff to mix (some flour may not be needed). Cover and refrigerate 2 hours or up to 4 days. Grease a 13x9-inch baking pan. Turn the chilled dough out onto a lightly floured board. Divide dough into 24 equal-size pieces. Roll each piece into a smooth round ball; place balls in even rows in the prepared pan. Cover and let dough balls rise until double in volume, about 1 hour. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake until rolls are golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Brush warm rolls with melted butter, if desired. Break rolls apart to serve.

Jenn, I am in love with your food blog. Thanks for sharing all your recipes with us. DD and I about stepped on our tongues when we saw the roll and the Monster Cookies. Those are two we will be trying.
