Make-Ahead Rolls for Thanksgiving

November 4, 2010 - 5:18am -- lagoldberg8397

I want to bake dinner rolls on Thanksgiving Day but make the dough and shape the rolls two days earlier.  Here are my questions - 


- Can I refrigerate the dough for 48 hours or do I need to freeze it?  I don't want the dough to overproof.


- Should I shape the rolls after the first rise and let the thawing period be the second rise?  Or do I need to do both rises before chilling the dough?
