Thanksgiving Recipe Favorites - Dinner Rolls

This is the third installation in my Thanksgiving Recipe Favorites where I am sharing our family's tried and true, absolute favorite dishes!

If you're feeling up to making these deee-luscious dinner rolls, prepare yourself, they will go fast. They do take a little time and effort, but are sooo worth it! And as with most of my recipes that have been gathered over the years from hither and yon, I don't know where these originate to give credit where credit is due.
Get the butter ready y'all...

Dinner Rolls
2 Tblsp. plus 2 tsp. yeast
2 Tblsp. plus 1 tsp. granulated sugar
1 c. warm water
1/2 c. sugar
6 c. all purpose flour
8 Tblsp. butter
1/4 c. veg. oil
1 egg
1 c. hot water
2 tsp. salt
2-3 Tblsp. veg. oil
Combine yeast, sugar and one cup of warm water in a med. sized bowl. Stir to dissolve and let rise until it equals 2 cups. In a large mixing bowl, add 1/2 c. sugar, 1/4 c. oil and the salt. Mix well. Add egg & mix well. Add the cup of hot water and the yeast mixture. Add three cups of the flour & mix well. Add the rest of the flour, one cup at a time, mixing well after each. On lightly floured surface, knead dough until it's easy to handle, about 10 - 12 times and then form into a ball. Place 2-3 tblsp. veg oil in a large bowl then place the ball of dough in the bowl with oil. Turn dough until all surfaces of the dough is coated with oil. Cover and let rise until doubled in size in a warm place. Melt the butter and set aside.
When dough has risen, punch down. On a floured surface, sprinkle dough with flour and roll out to a one inch thickness and cut into triangle to roll into crescent shapes or pinch off small balls of dough (without rolling out dough) with your hands (about the size of golf balls) for round rolls. Dip each dough ball into melted butter. Place rolls in shallow pan with sides touching and cover again and let rise until double in size.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit on lowest oven rack until golden brown. You may brush with butter when they come out of the oven.
Note- I have never made these ahead of time and warmed them up, but I don't see why you couldn't. I would probably just not butter them when they come out of the oven if I were going to do it this way.
What are YOUR family favorites?
