The Secret to Soft Dinner Rolls
While I love crusty artisan-style sourdough bread, I prefer dinner rolls to be tender and soft - pliable and sweet. To produce rolls with a soft crust and tender crumb, adding fat or egg to the dough helps, but the trick I've found to be most effective is to dampen a tea towel slightly with warm water and to lay it over the buns as soon as they emerge from the oven. This helps to ensure the crust doesn't harden and the dinner rolls remain pleasantly soft.
