Who doesn't love a warm, soft and delicious dinner roll with a optional garlic and herb butter on top.
Well I sure do, and these are the perfect rolls. They go with any meal, you can start them in the morning and by the time you are ready for dinner just pop them in the oven to bake, very simple recipe and you will love them, glad I found this recipe, I cant stop making them, the family loves them..
1/3 cup warm water
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
2 teaspoons salt
1 cup scalded milk
4 1/ - 5 cups all purpose flour
(Makes 15-18 rolls)
Garlic Butter: ( Optional But Highly Recommend)
1/4 cup butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh herbs (parsley, oregano, chives)
3/4 teaspoon salt
2.In a small saucepan, warm the milk.
3.In another large mixing bowl combine sugar, butter, salt and milk.
4.Let the mixture cool to lukewarm.
5.Once cool, stir in eggs and yeast.
6.Gradually add flour to form a stiff dough, beating well after each addition. Only add as much as you need so that the dough is no longer sticky.
7.Knead the dough on a floured surface until it is a smooth (about 5-8 minutes) or with dough hook on a mixer for about 4-5 minutes
8.Cover the ball of dough with a tea towel and let it rise in a warm place until it is doubled in size, about 1-2 hours
( I keep mine in the microwave or by stove) after it doubled in size, in the center punch down the dough, and then cover again, letting it rise for another hour or until it has about doubled again.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray with cooking spray a 9x13 inch casserole dish, I use glass
9.To form even rolls, cut the dough in half. Continue dividing each section in half until you have 16-18 rolls.
10.Place rolls side by side in your dish and bake for 12 to 15 minutes until golden brown.
11. Optional For The Garlic And Herb Butter: To prepare the garlic herb butter.
Mix together 1/4 cup very soft butter with 2 teaspoons minced garlic, salt and 2 teaspoons chopped herbs.
When the rolls come out of the oven, brush the garlic butter over top and serve warm.
