Even the beginner cook can make these. And they're true home-made rolls. They must chill 2 hours. Or you can make them up 3 days in advance.
- Combine water and yeast in lg bowl; let stand for 5 minutes.
- With wooden spoon, stir in butter, sugar, eggs and salt.
- Add flour, 1 cup at a time and beat in as much as you can.
- (you will probably be able to use all the flour) Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or up to 3 days.
- Grease a 13x9 baking pan.
- Turn dough out onto floured surface.
- Divide into 24 equal pieces.
- Roll each piece into a smooth round ball.
- Place in rows in prepared pan.
- Cover and let rise for 1 hour; until doubled.
- Heat oven to 375*.
- Bake until golden brown, about 17 minutes.
These were excellent! I thought the taste was wonderful and they looked beautiful. The dough was so easy to work with and rose just fine for me. I served these as part of my Thanksgiving meal and everyone commented on how light and fluffy these rolls were. Delicious!NOTE: I did knead the dough a bit before refrigerating it, even though the instructions didn't mention kneading.
These rolls tasted very good when they were finally done, but the problem was that it took a lot longer for them to rise than was posted in the recipe book. We ended up having them for a "post-dinner" addition. I would recommend these rolls to others, but make sure you leave plenty of time for rising!
I am always happy to try MizzNez's recipes. This is another practical and tasty one! Just a clarification for those of us who cannot buy "packages" of yeast. Rule of thumb is 1 teaspoon of yeast per one cup of flour.
