These yeasty rolls are great when you want dinner rolls and you are short on time.
- 2 (1/4 ounce) packages active dry yeast
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
- 1⁄2 cup warm water (105-115 degrees)
- 1 1⁄4 cups milk
- 5 cups bread flour
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine, cut into pieces
- Combine yeast, 1 Tablespoon sugar, and warm water in a 2-cup liquid measuring cup; let stand 5 minutes. Add milk to yeast mixture and stir.
- In a food processor, combine flour, salt, remaining 2 Tablespoons sugar, and butter or margarine. Pulse until thoroughly incorporated. With food processor running, slowly drizzle yeast mixture through feed tube until ball forms. Run machine for about 2 minutes to knead dough thoroughly.
- Remove dough from processor and place in a well greased bowl, turning to coat top. Cover and let stand in a warm place for 15 minutes.
- Punch down dough. Divide dough in half; shape one portion of dough into 12 balls. Place in a greased 8 or 9-inch square pan. Repeat with remaining half of dough. Cover pans and let rise in a warm place for 15 minutes.
- Bake at 425°F for 10-15 minutes or until rolls are golden brown.
Outstanding rolls, and so quick and easy! I used my stand mixer instead of a food processor. I was doing chores around the house while making these so each rising time was probably more like 20 minutes instead of 15. Great recipe - thanks for sharing it!
I made these twice. The first time, they didn't rise much at all, so I started them in a cold oven. They looked like hockey pucks, but they were soft and biscuity, and tasted wonderful.
The second time, I let them rise 30 minutes for the first rise, and they came out very light and fluffy. We really enjoyed them. A nice last-minute roll--even if you don't make them right! Thanks for posting!
The flavor of these dinner rolls is excellent. I didn't used my food processor (we just don't get alone) so I made these with my Kitchen Aide. Dissolved the yeast and sugar (splenda) in the warm water. Added the milk salt and melted butter and mixed that well with the blade. Switched to the dough hook and added 4 cups of all purpose flour and it turned out wonderful. I gave it a little extra time to rise the second time, maybe 30 minutes. Light, airy, flavorful dinner rolls that I'll make again. Thanks Bayhill. Made for SSC Pet Parade.
