I've been on a dinner roll kick lately and this is another good one! Mine didn't turn out as perfectly shaped as the rolls in the <---photo, but they tasted delicious at least! Thank you Stacky and may your memory live on through your recipes!
well 2 more cup of flour do for this recipe .
I made a double batch of these for Christmas Eve. The best part was that you made the dough a day ahead and put it away until you rolled them out. I rolled out, cut (pizza cutter works great)and rolled 40 rolls in 20 minutes. They were stubborn risers though. So I heated up the oven a little 170 degrees turned it off and put the pans of rolls in covered with dish towels and the oven door open. They rose much faster. They apparently need a very warm environment to rise in the 3 hours suggested. When they came out of the oven I was impressed with the recipe and my rolls. From a bakery beautiful,plus my guests had the pleasure of the wonderful home baked smell as well. Lots of compliments. I did add about 2 cups extra flour to a double batch. I will make these again and again. I thought it might be interesting to brush a few triangles with melted butter before rolling them up. If it's a good thing I'll let you know. Thanks for a wonderful permanent addition to my recipes.
On Thanksgiving day I did not realize I needed to raise the rolls for 3 hours so, I made them later that night. I ended up kneading more flour into the dough before I could shape the rolls. They were worth the wait, light and delicious. I do wonder however if the 3 hours rise is necessary.
I had to use way more than 3 cups of flour, and still ended up with what looked like a bowl of batter rather than dough. After refrigerating for a day, I tried to roll the dough as directed, but it was still way too soft and sticky to form into crescent shapes. I ended up putting spoonsful of the dough into muffin tins. The taste of the rolls was average.
These were wonderfully light and slightly sweet. My family devoured them and fought over the last one! I did add more flour than called for cuz my dough was very sticky. I used my Kitchen Aid Stand mixer, and it worked great.
