Dinner Rolls: In bread machine pan, place all ingredients from flour through yeast in order as recommended by the manufacturer. Select the dough setting. Check dough after 5 minutes of mixing. If needed, add 1-2T of water or flour. Mix dough according to bread machine instructions. Lightly grease a 9 X 13-inch baking pan (I always use a metal pan). Divide dough and shape into 15 uniformly sized balls. I always grease my hands with shortening to smooth the dough keep it from drying out. Cover and let the rolls rise in a warm, draft free place until risen to the desired size, about double. Bake in a 350°F oven about 12 to 15 minutes until golden brown. After removing from the oven, brush the tops of the rolls with melted butter. Take out of pan and let cool.
