I make yeast roll dough in my bread machine, then form them into rolls and let them rise. They are delicious but when rising they seem to spread out and not rise very high. What can I do to make them taller?
If you're making a soft dough, the rolls need to be placed closed enough together to support each other for the final rise and baking. Or you could make individual rolls in muffin tins if you're looking for a soft roll with a crispy crust. For hard rolls, it may be that your bread machine doesn't need the dough enough to form adequate gluten...the gluten is what will give the dough structure. Try starting the kneading in the machine and then kneading by hand with a little extra flour. The dough should be very elastic when you finish kneading. Good baking.
