DINNER ROLLS

Dinner rolls as appetizers in restaurants ! ahh I never used to like them a lot. But after a while I got used to those light, fluffy and so delicious rolls with butter. My friend makes the most delicious dinner rolls. I finally got the recipe from her and made my first attempt at baking these amazing rolls. Thanks for the great recipe !

INGREDIENTS:
  • 2-1/4 tbsp dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 cups warm milk
  • 3/4 tbsp of butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 3/4 tbsp salt
  • 3 to 3-1/2  cups all-purpose flour
PROCESS:

1. Prepare the Dinner Roll Yeast

Mix1 packet of dry yeast, that’s 2 1/4 tsp. And a 1/4 cup of warm, not hot, water.
Dissolve 1 cup of milk, and 3 tbsp of butter and throw it in the microwave for a minute to warm the milk.
In the yeast mixture throw 1 beaten egg, sugar, salt and first only one cup of flour.
Give that a mix and add slowly the second and third cup of flour until it forms sticky dough.
So after 3 to 3-1/2 cups of flour, it should look like this.

2. Knead the Dinner Roll Dough

On a floured board, Knead dough until you have a smooth and elastic, but still soft and slightly sticky dough. Allow the Dough to Rise
In a mixing bowl, add a 1/2 tsp of vegetable oil, throw in the dough and make sure it’s coated with oil so it doesn’t dry out.
Cover with a towel and let it rise, in a warn spot, until double in size. Should take about an hour to an hour and a half.
After it doubles, throw it on a lightly floured cutting board, and pat it down with your hands. Form it into a square shape.
Now, we’re going to put them on the pan, kind of close, about 1 1/2″ apart.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy.
