I joined a new blogger group – Foodie Fans of the Pioneer Woman. I love all of the Pioneer Woman’s recipes and I can’t wait to try lots of new recipes every other week! The first challenge was to try one of the PW Thanksgiving recipes. I chose her no-knead dinner rolls. These were SO easy and tasted great. The rolls were light and had a hint of sweetness. I could eat a whole pan of these rolls! I will make these again and again.
Pioneer Woman No-Knead Dinner Rolls
4 cups Milk
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Vegetable Oil
9 cups Flour
2 packages (4 ½ Tsp.) Active Dry Yeast
1 teaspoon (heaping) Baking Powder
1 teaspoon (scant) Baking Soda
2 Tablespoons Salt
Pour 4 cups of milk into a stock pot or Dutch oven. Add one cup of sugar and 1 cup of vegetable oil. Stir to combine. Now, turn the burner on medium to medium-low and “scald” the mixture/lukewarm (between 90 and 110 degrees).
When the mixture is the right temperature add in 4 cups of flour and 2 packages of (4-½ teaspoons) of active dry yeast. After the yeast and flour are nicely incorporated, add another 4 cups of flour. Stir together and allow to sit, covered with a tea towel or lid, for an hour. After about an hour it should have almost doubled in size. If it hasn’t changed much, put it in a warm (but turned off ) oven for 45 minutes or so. When it had risen sufficiently add 1 more cup of flour, 1 heaping teaspoon of baking powder, 1 scant teaspoon of baking soda and about 2 tablespoons of salt. Stir (or knead just a bit) until combined.
Butter 1 or 2 muffin pans. Form the rolls by pinching off a walnut sized piece of dough and rolling it into a little ball. Repeat and tuck three balls of dough into each buttered muffin cup. Continue until pan is full. Cover and allow to rise for about 1 to 2 hours.
Bake in a 400-degree oven until golden brown, about 15 to 17 minutes.

thanks so much for posting this in our new food group blog! These are one of a zillion of her recipes I look forward to making. Can't wait to see what you make next time– breakfast or brunch?
These look delicious! The perfect dinner accompaniment. I've been really into yeast baking lately so I will have to try these!
They look great! I love freshly baked rolls. I could eat a whole pan, too!
I have joined the same group. I made a Pioneer Woman recipe for Thanksgiving – it may have been the best thing on the buffet. I'll talk more about it in a blog post.
I LOVE those rolls, so light and tasty. But the best thing about them? You get three sides to butter:)
