You really can make these rolls in an hour. I have used this dough to make quick cinnamon rolls. These directions are for a Kitchen-Aid mixer.
- 4 -5 cups flour
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 (1/4 ounce) packages yeast
- 1 cup milk
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1⁄4 cup butter or 1⁄4 cup margarine
- Combine 3 1/2 cups flour, sugar, salt and undissoloved yeast in bowl.
- Attach bowl and dough hook. Turn to speed 2 and mix for 1 minute.
- Combine milk, water and margarine in a saucepan. Heat over low heat, until liquids are very warm (120 to 130). Margarine does not need to melt.
- Turn to speed 2 and gradually add liquid to flour mixture, about 30 seconds. Mix 1 minute longer. Continue on speed 2, adding remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, as needed. Mix until dough clings to hook, about 5 minutes.
- Knead dough on speed 2 for 7-10 minutes longer, or until dough is smooth and elastic. Stop.
- Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover, let rise in a warm place 15 minutes.
- Turn dough out onto floured board. Divide in half and shape as desired. Cover; let rise in slightly warm oven (about 90 degrees) for 15 minutes or until doubled in bulk [usually 15 minutes works just fine!].
- Bake at 425, for 12 minutes, or until nice and brown. Remove from baking sheets and cool on wire racks.
- I usually make balls. But for something fancy you can make one of the following:.
- Curlicues: Divide dough in half and roll each half to 12x9 inch rectangle. Cut 12 equal strips about 1 inch wide. Hold one end of strip firmly and wind tightly to form a coil, tucking ends underneath. Place on greased baking sheets about 2 inches apart.
- Cloverleafs: Divide dough into 24 equal pieces. Form each piece into a ball and place in greased muffin pan. With scissors, cut each ball in half, then quarters, cutting through to almost bottom of rolls.
I found the instructions a little unclear, however, I used common sense to get through the unclear portions. They turned out fluffy and yummy. I put them in the oven to rise at 90* and then removed them while the oven preheated to 425* and then put them back in. I left them in for 9 minutes and they cooked perfectly.
Bit unclear. But doing how to make buns it all worked out. They where easy to make where so good hot from oven freze well.
Came out fluffy and delicious. Liked that you can knead it in the machine rather than by hand!
