The holidays are looming large on the horizon and nothing complements a great meal like dinner rolls.  These rolls are homemade and quite good.  The recipe comes from  Olivia tried it and as you can see they turned out great.  The dough is made in a bread machine.  I like that because kneading bread can be an inexact science at best and kneading the dough too much can make the rolls tough.  Try this recipe and I think you will find it a great addition to your holiday table.
