Dinner-Rolls

I wish my hips and lips appreciated things in equal measure. I wish what made my mouth happy, what made it drool and have multiple big Os would also make my hips just sway in happiness and not expand. Unfortunately life is unfair and we can’t have have our bread and eat it too, see what i did there.

This dinner roll is amazing. I love it and it always impressed my guests and definitely my brother Charles. Actually, maybe that is not a good way to tell if food is good, Charles would eat a stone if it had sugar or chocolate in it. That said he loves this rolls and everyone who has tasted them has loves so rest assured they will be a hit in your kitchen.

 

HAPPY BAKING!!

Pour yeast mixture into a large bowl and add 5 tablespoons sugar, warm milk, egg, salt, and butter. Mix until well combined.

Slowly add in the flour, mixing well after each addition. I use a dough hook for this but you can use a wooden spoon till it gets too sticky. add flour till the dough is soft but no longer sticky.

Transfer dough to a large, greased bowl. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in a warm, for about 2 hours or until doubled in size.

Grease knuckles and punch dough down to release the air. Transfer dough to a floured surface.

Add just enough flour to dough and hands to handle dough without it sticking to your hands.

Divide dough into two equal balls.

Roll out the balls into a 33 cm circles. Slice the dough with a pizza cutter into small wedges. like you would a croissant.

Brush dough with honey butter.Flour your fingertips and roll each wedge up starting at the widest end.

Place rolls on a greased cookie sheet, pointed tip tucked under.Cover with plastic wrap and place in a warm area until rolls are doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 185 degrees centigrede.

Remove plastic wrap and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden.

Brush hot rolls with leftover honey butter.

Serve hot!

To Make Honey Butter: Combine all honey butter ingredients. Stir until creamy.
