Bread Machine Dinner Rolls

These may be my new favorite dinner rolls! So light and fluffy and TASTEE. And the bonus is that they are "bread machine friendly."  I found these on The Pioneer Woman's Tasty Kitchen website.

1 cup Warm Water
2 Tablespoons Butter
1 whole Egg
3 1/2 cups Bread Flour
1/4 cups Sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
3 teaspoons Quick-acting Active Dry Yeast Or Bread Machine Yeast

Put the ingredients into your bread machine in the order given. Water first and then the butter and so on. Make sure you have a little dent in the top of your mound of ingredients for the yeast.
Set your machine on the dough setting, then press the button.
When your dough is ready, lay it out onto a floured surface. Cut into 18 small rolls (or could make 12 hamburger size buns).
Pinch the rolls into a nice shape and place on baking sheet (I put a Silpat under mine. They didn't brown very much on the bottom - not sure if that was why?)
Cover with a clean towel and let the rolls rise for 30 minutes, they should double in size.
Cook at 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.

Tip for freezing: After shaping the rolls, flash freeze. When frozen, seal them in a freezer Ziplock and store for later use. To defrost, place frozen rolls into a greased pan and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm place (approx. 2-3 hours) and then bake as directed.
