Perfect Dinner Rolls
I'm not sure I have mentioned this on the blog yet but last Friday I officially become a housewife/stay at home mom again. I am super excited because that means I have more things to do the things I love! Like bake and blog. So I was really craving some hot homemade dinner rolls last night :) here is the ones I made!(Thanks Martha Stewart for the guidance.lol) Just a warning if you want these in time for a certain meal make note they take 4 hours about from start to finish!
- 1/4 cup warm water (115 degrees)
- 2 packets (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
- 1 1/2 cups warm whole milk (115 degrees)
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted, plus more for bowl and pans
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 1/4 teaspoons salt
- 3 large eggs
- 6 to 6 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled), plus more for work surface
Place water in a small bowl; sprinkle with yeast, and let
stand until foamy, about 5 minutes. In a large bowl, whisk together
milk, butter, sugar, salt, and 2 eggs. Whisk in yeast mixture.
Using a wooden spoon, stir in 6 cups flour, 1 cup at a time,
until you have a soft, shaggy dough (if necessary, add up to 1/2 cup
more flour). Turn dough out onto a floured work surface; knead until
smooth and elastic, 5 to 10 minutes. Butter the inside of a large bowl;
place dough in bowl, turning to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap; let
stand in a warm spot until dough has doubled in size, about 1 1/4 hours.
Butter two 13-by-9-inch baking pans. Divide dough in half.
Roll each half into a 15-inch rope; cut each rope into 15 1-inch pieces.
Press each piece into a disk, then shape into a ball. Arrange dough
balls in prepared pans. (To make ahead: Wrap pans well, and freeze, up
to 2 months.) Cover pans loosely with plastic; let stand in a warm spot
until rolls have doubled in size, about 1 1/4 hours (2 hours more if
Preheat oven to 375 degrees, with racks in upper and lower
thirds. In a small bowl, beat remaining egg until blended; brush onto
rolls. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes, rotating pans back to
front and top to bottom halfway through. Let rolls cool 15 minutes
