Recipe by CHEF GRPA
This versatile dough makes wonderful soft, sweet dinner rolls, but can also be used for cinnamon rolls.
- 1⁄2 cup warm water (110*F.)
- 1⁄2 cup warm milk
- 1 egg
- 1⁄3 cup butter, softened
- 1⁄3 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 3⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 (1/4 ounce) package active dry yeast
- 1⁄4 cup butter, softened
Directions See How It's Made
- 1. Place water, milk, egg, 1/3 cup butter, sugar, salt, flour and yeast in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select Dough/Knead and First Rise Cycle; press Start.
- 2. When cycle finishes, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide dough in half. Roll each half into a 12 inch circle, spread 1/4 cup softened butter over entire round. Cut each circle into 8 wedges. Roll wedges starting at wide end; roll gently but tightly. Place point side down on ungreased cookie sheet. Cover with clean kitchen towel and put in a warm place, let rise 1 hour. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400*F.
- My Note: I'm always asked to bring the rolls to get-togethers. I've used it for cinnamon rolls, monkey bread -- almost everything. I do cheat, however; normally I cut the dough into 36 pieces and place 3 into each cup of a muffin tin. It makes big, light clover leaf rolls that everyone raves over. don't have a breadmaker, so I made these the traditional way (dissolve yeast and 1 tbsp sugar in warm water, let sit for about 10 minute Meanwhile, warm milk in saucepan until it just bubbles. Remove from heat, stir in sugar and butter until melted and cool to lukewarm. In a large bowl combine yeast mixture, milk mixture and egg. Stir in flour a little at a time and knead on lightly floured surface about 8 min.) Cover and let rise about 1 hr -- punch down and then roll out. I baked at 375 for 12 min, but could have used a tad longer. Still very good. he dough was too sticky in the machine, so I sprinkled flour into it until it was smooth. I was concerned about not using bread machine flour or bread machine yeast. I used the all purpose flour as it called for, but I used the bread machine yeast -- it was all I had. I used 2 1/2 tsp of bread machine yeast. They rose just fine and taste great. I will use this recipe to replace my old bread machine roll recipe. As did another reviewer, I cut my dough into 36 pieces and placed three balls of dough into each muffin cup. They turned into beautiful clover rolls. Nice touch. Also, I use a pizza cutter to cut my dough.
