Tender Dinner Rolls

These were fabulous rolls.  I could've had just these rolls for dinner.  Never mind the ham sweet potatoes or green beans.  Wow, yum.

Tender Dinner Rolls

Adapted from this recipe at The Kitchn

1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup milk
1 large egg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups flour
1 tablespoon butter

In a stand mixer place warm milk and water (105F) (like stick you finger int eh water for fifteen seconds and be comfortable kind of warm.  Add sugar, stir and then put the yeast in.  I know there is a protocol to bread making that you have to follow.  To be honest I don't follow it at all.  I place all my dry ingredients in the stand mixer and then add the liquid.  With yeast today- instant- I don't really feel I have to proof it.  I have never had a bread that didn't rise.  So if you want to brave - go ahead and throw it all in the mixer, except for the butter.  After mixing for about eight minutes, take out of the mixer and just give it a littel knead to make sure everything is pulled together nicely.  Place in a lightly oiled bowl, cover and let rise for about an hour.

Remove from bowl and fold like you would a business letter, in thirds.  Turn and fold again. Let rest for about five minutes.  Cut into 12 equal pieces.  Shape into rolls and place in a greased 9 x 13.  Cover and let rise for about 4o minutes. 

Preheat oven to 375F.  Brush rolls with melted butter and place in oven.  Bake until golden, about 15 to 20 minutes.

These definitely look amazing and a little scary for the self control department.
I love the newer look of the blog with the pink roses - so pretty
