Dinner Rolls! Fluffy pale golden globes, crusty on the outside and chewy on the inside. Little nutritional value. Loaded with butter (or veggie spread), companions to excessive amounts of food.

Because they're delicious, of course! And they make holiday meals special. Plus, they're easy and fun to make! And a sure way to guarantee that the rolls you're serving are non-dairy.
