Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in 1/2 cup warm water in a bowl; let stand until mixture is foaming, about 10 minutes.

  • Stir warm milk, 6 tablespoons sugar, salt, and remaining 1/2 cup warm water into yeast mixture. Gradually whisk 2 cups flour into yeast mixture until smooth. Add remaining 3 1/2 cup flour, egg, 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons vegetable oil to flour-yeast mixture; stir until dough is soft.

  • Turn dough onto a floured work surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6 to 8 minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning once so top of dough is greased. Cover bowl with a damp towel and let rise in a warm room until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

  • Punch dough and divide in half. Roll each half on a floured surface until 1/3 to 1/2-inch thick. Cut dough using a floured 2 1/2-inch round cutter. Brush each dough circle with melted butter.

  • Make an off-center crease in each dough circle using the dull edge of a table knife. Fold along crease so larger half is on top; press along folded edge.

  • Grease a baking sheet.

  • Arrange folded dough circles, 2 to 3 inches apart, on the prepared baking sheet. Cover with a damp towel or plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Remove towel or plastic wrap from dough.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until rolls are golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer rolls to a wire rack to cool.

They were dense and dry but... I may have had the milk too hot. I failed to put the sugar in the yeast. I swear by King Arthur and can't find any, big box store flour just isn't the same. I didn't pinch the rounds good enough and they popped up into L shapes. Makes a lot, I had 15 rolls, one loaf pan and one round loaf. Kids thought the rolls tasted familiar, I was reminded of grands or crescent rolls in a tube although far superior. Read More

I did not use the recipe for rolls I followed it however while kneading it I realized it had a texture simular to many standard breads. Instead I made 4 small (5 inch diameter)round loaves I used for bread bowls with a soup and used the remainder to make a large loaf which I braided to give it more pizazz. The texture and the taste are very nice just a hint of sweetness which added to the soup I'd made. Good stuff I save it for future use. Read More
