These rolls are so easy and very good. They take around 1 hour and you get the fresh bread smell in your house and rolls for dinner! YUM.
I doubled this so I could freeze some...they did not make it to the freezer! :)
3/4 C milk
4 T butter
3/4 C hot water
4 T sugar
1 t salt
4 - 4 1/2 C flour
1 heaping T yeast
Melt the butter and milk either on stove or microwave.
Preheat your oven to 170 degrees. While the milk and butter is melting, turn on the tap to get your hot water. **Temperature is important to making these rolls rise quickly**
Put your milk/butter and hot water in the bottom of the mixing bowl. Add the sugar and salt. Then add 2 C of the flour...let it mix for 1 minute.
Add the yeast. Turn the mixer on and add the rest of the flour 1 C at a time.
You have enough flour when the dough scrapes the side of the bowl clean. Mix on medium speed for 5 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 5 minutes. Coat the inside of a 9 by 13 pan with butter. Spray your counter, or a cutting board with cooking spray. Lay your dough on top of it. Take a sharp knife, spray it with cooking spray and cut your dough into 12 pieces. Gently round them into balls, and put them in your buttered 9x13 pan.
Put the pan into your warm 170 degree oven. Let them rise for about 20 minutes or until they have risen about 1 inch above the rim of the pan. Leave your pan in the oven and turn the heat up to 350 degrees. Bake for 15 minutes. This time includes the time it takes the oven to increase in temperature. If your oven takes a long time you may need to increase time...I baked them 25 min while it was heating to 350. Bake until golden brown. Eat! Enjoy~
