  5. Knead the dough until it becomes smooth and elastic (about 10 minutes).
  6. Place in a greased bowl to rise until double in size (about 1 hour).
  7. Divide the dough into small balls and place in greased muffin cups (for clover-leaf rolls, place 3 balls in each muffin cup; for regular dinner rolls, place 2 balls in each muffin cup).
