Dinner Rolls in One Hour
photo by Lori Mama
- Ready In:
- 2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 3⁄4 teaspoons fast rise yeast (1 package)
- 5 tablespoons instant nonfat dry milk powder
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup water (very warm, about 130 degrees F)
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- In either a food processor or mixing bowl, mix the flour, yeast, milk, sugar, and salt.
- Add the water and oil and stir or process until a thick, sticky dough forms. Let stand for 5 minutes.
- Butter an 8-inch round cake pan.
- Place the dough on a lightly floured board. Gather the dough together gently. Using a floured knife or dough scraper, cut the dough into quarters. Cut each quarter into quarters, and shape each into balls, adding flour, if necessary, to prevent stickiness.
- Place the dough pieces close together in the prepared pan. Cover, and let rise in a warm place for 20 to 25 minutes or until the rolls are puffy.
- Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Drizzle the melted butter over the rolls.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.

I was looking through all the recipes here for dinner rolls. I read yours, and saved it to my short list of something to make for Thanksgiving. I thought I had never heard the name Beatrice Ojakangas before, but literally 10 minutes after I read your recipe I went to my old bookcase in the hallway (it's pretty dark in there) full of cookbooks, pulled one out at random only because I could see the word "Baking" in the title. I took it back to my computer table, then looked at the cover and saw that it was The Great Scandinavian Baking Book by Beatrice Ojakangas! I had read through the book at some point because it has little orange "flags" sticking out of several pages, but it is one of those books I had sort forgotten I had. It was so funny and strange I had to write and tell you, even though it's too late to start baking even "One Hour" Rolls tonight! When I read your description, I would have sworn I had never seen that name before. With such a coincidence for an omen, I guess it means I should make your recipe for Thanksgiving! I'm planning a trial run tomorrow. Wish me luck. 5 stars for helping me pick one recipe out of the hundreds I have read through tonight!
