This roll recipe is from the Logan's Roadhouse Restaurant and are VERY YUMMY!!
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 (1/4 ounce) packages active dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1⁄4 cup nonfat dry milk powder
- 1 1⁄4 cups water (105-115 degrees)
- 1 large egg, slightly beaten
- 8 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons butter flavor shortening
- Place 2 cups flour in a large mixing bowl.
- Add yeast, salt, sugar and dry milk.
- Set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, combine water and egg and stir to blend.
- Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.
- Pour water mixture into well.
- Mix by hand, beating 150 strokes and frequently scraping bottom and sides of bowl.
- Add 1/2 the melted butter and beat to incorporate.
- Add remaining flour, about 1/3 cup at a time, beating to incorporate each addition.
- Cover bowl with plastic wrap.
- Set dough in a warm, draft-free place such as oven with pan of hottest tap water on rack below.
- Allow batter to rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
- Coat cups, bottoms and sides of a 12-cup muffin pan (or two small round pans) with butter-flavored vegetable shortening.
- Punch down batter (batter will be extremely soft and sticky).
- Drop by hand or spoonful into prepared muffin pan cups to make 12 rolls (if in pan, each roll touching the next).
- Brush dough with 1/2 remaining melted butter.
- Let rise, uncovered, in warm, draft-free place until almost doubled in bulk, about 30 minutes.
- In preheated 400-degree oven, bake rolls on middle rack 16-18 minutes.
- Brush tops of cooked rolls with remaining melted butter.
- Serve immediately.
These rolls did not tast like Logan's and I did not enjoy them. The dough was too runny to shape into rolls and the muffin pan effect was unpleasing. I will not make these rolls again. I am glad I did a test batch before thanksgiving.
They're not like the Roadhouse rolls--but no need to be mean to state it! They're DELICIOUS and soft and yummy. My husband and I tried last night, while still warm--to die for--and this morning they were still delicious. Like Kittencall I basted with butter after the 2nd rise. Also added 1 extra tbsp of sugar. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe, Cinderbear!
