So as usual its 3 o'clock before I start thinking about what we're going to have for dinner. This particular night I decided on soup. And people, you know that nothing goes better with soup than some fresh, hot out of the oven, dinner rolls. But like I said, its 2 hours before dinner time and so there's no time... Until I decided to search Pinterest and came across this recipe. The answer I was looking for!
You would think that there's no way they would be as good as rolls that take hours and hours to make, but you'd be wrong. Way wrong. These have become one of our favorite recipes. They are pillowy soft, and the perfect texture. I make them all the time now. These are what you need to make when dinner is only an hour away!
1 Hour Dinner Rolls
Recipe Source: Our Best Bites
1 1/2 cups Non-Fat Milk (I make mine from powdered milk)
3 Table spoons Butter, cut into pieces
3 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
4 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 Tablespoon Quick-Rise Yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons Salt
1 Egg, room temp
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a glass bowl combine the butter, milk, and sugar for approx. 2 minutes. You want to heat it until its between 120-130 degrees.
2. While the milk mixture is heating up, combine the 3 1/2 cups of your flour, yeast, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Whisk together. When your milk is warm enough add to your flour mixture and beat. Add your egg and beat until just combined. Scrape the sides of your bowl and add the remaining flour 1/4 cup at a time until soft and sticky.
3. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick spray. Sprinkle another 1/4 cup of flour on your counter and scrape the dough on to it. Sprinkle more flour on the top of your dough. Gently press your dough into a rectangle. score your dough with a knife into 24 sections and gently form each section into a ball. Place your dough balls in your prepared pan.
4. Let the dough rest for about 25 minutes or almost double in size. Bake rolls for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove pan from the oven and brush the tops with your melted butter.
