Sweet Dinner Rolls

What goes better with a big bowl of warm beef stew, than a soft and sweet roll fresh from the oven? Since work was a little slower yesterday I took advantage of the extra time to make homemade rolls to go with our stew for dinner. While I have made yeast bread before, I had never tackled any type of roll, and now I’m sorry that I didn’t try them sooner! This was a very simple recipe to put together – the ingredients came together quickly and the dough only needed about 5 minutes of kneading time on my Kitchen Aid. It was very easy to work with and I simply divided the ball of dough into 16 semi-equally shaped balls.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1/4 cup butter, softened

Directions:
1) Place water and milk in microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute or until liquids reach (110 degrees F/45 degrees C). Pour liquids into mixer bowl; add sugar and stir to dissolve. Add in yeast and let set for 10-20 minutes to proof (the mixture will be foamy).

2) Mix on low speed adding the salt, butter and egg. Once well mixed add in the flour 1/4 cup at a time. Remove the paddle attachment and attach the dough hook. With the machine, knead the dough for 5-10 minutes or until smooth and elastic.

3) Remove the dough from the bowl and shape into desired shapes (I cut the ball of dough into quarters, and then quartered each of those, and then rolled each piece into a ball). Cover with a clean towel and let rise in a warm place for an hour. Gently brush the tops of the rolls with half of the softened butter.

4) Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Upon removing the rolls from the oven brush them with remaining softened butter once again.
