1/2 c. sugar
1 Tbs. yeast

Put warm milk, sugar and yeast into your mixer and mix for a minute until combined. Let the yeast grow until bubbly (about 5-10 minutes).

Place rolls on greased cookie sheet 4 across and 4 down. Cover w/ greased plastic wrap. Let rise until doubled in size (about 1 hour). Bake at 400 for 10-12 minutes.

1/4 c. cream cheese (optioal)
1/2 t. vanilla
