Description

Everything you want in a dinner roll: buttery, doughy, baked to a perfect golden brown, and melt-in-your-mouth delicious! You won’t be able to eat just one.

Ingredients

  • 1-½ cup Milk
  • ¾ cups Plus 1 Tablespoon White Sugar
  • 1 cup Unsalted Butter
  • 2 cups Lukewarm Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Yeast
  • 10 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 whole Large Egg
  • 1 Tablespoon Salt

Preparation

Pour the milk, 3/4 cup white sugar, and 1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter (cut the butter into cubes first) into a microwave safe bowl.

Heat for 1 minute at a time, just until the butter is melted. Set aside.

In another bowl pour water over the yeast, and the 1 tablespoon white sugar. Mix and set aside.

In another large bowl add the milk mixture, 1 cup of flour, 1 egg, and the salt. Mix to combine.

When the mixture has cooled, add the yeast mixture, and the remainder of the flour one cup at a time, stirring between each addition of flour.

When the mixture became too thick to stir, I used my clean hands to mix thoroughly.

Once all the flour has been added, kneed the dough until it forms a nice ball. Cover and let rise for 1 hour.

When the dough has risen, split it into four equal pieces.

Pat one of the pieces out into 1/2″ thick sheet.

In a microwave safe bowl melt (you guessed it) 1/4 cup butter.

With a pastry brush, generously brush the sheet of dough with the melted butter.

Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough into nine squares.

Gather the corners of each square and bring to the center, and crimp together.

Flip over and use your hand to shape the roll however you would like it.

Place each roll onto a well greased cookie sheet.

Leave a tiny amount of space between each roll (this allows room for rising.) Repeat with the remaining sections of dough.

Cover the finished rolls and let them rise for 30 minutes.

While they are rising, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.

Melt 1/4 cup butter, and with a pastry brush, brush the tops of the rolls.

Once the rolls have cooled, separate them and place them in a bowl (if you’re planning to eat them right away, I would recommend making them this way), or put them into an air-tight container in the fridge.

Bring these to you next dinner party, you’ll be the official roll maker from now on.

Yum..the only thing I would suggest is to be a little more thorough about the steps. Do I put the dough in a greased dish to rise? Do I knead the dough on a floured surface? Only, because some new bread bakers may not know and the directions don’t really state that. Otherwise, these rolls are very good and worth the time to make.
