Recipes for Little Red Hen One-Hour Rolls makes about 2 dozen rolls. I usually make 20 rolls rather than 24 because the roll ended just smaller than my fist, (which is the perfect size for a roll if you ask me), but you can do what you like. Baked rolls their best day, although they continue addictive for two days. For gatherings larger, easily double the recipe and still can be done in about an hour, leaving you time for a nap before dinner!

One bit digression- I use a Bosch mixer me to make these rolls. I grew up watching my mother make bread and cakes in a Bosch, I learned how to do the same thing in Bosch. I regard it as a rite of passage when I received my own Bosch, up there with having my own Pyrex and the first time from my children vomited in the middle of the night and suddenly I was the mother who had to clean it up. One of those moments when you realize that you are an adult. A defining moment in my life. I like Bosch me, so I sometimes feel that KitchenAids like cool-kid-cheerleader from the kitchen scene with their bright colors and large that clicking sound that it makes when you lift the lever up and down. Darn cool kids. A KitchenAid will, I believe, with good cooperation when making the rolls. However, they may just taste better if made within Bosch. Maybe.
