Recipe: Sweet Dinner Rolls

This recipe makes AMAZING rolls! The kind you can bring to the ward potluck and be proud of:) I got this recipe, along with most of my favorite recipes, from www.allrecipes.com, a super great recipe site where you can search recipes, and also see how they are rated and reviewed.

NOTE: I don't mix this up in a bread machine, since I don't have one. Instead, I mix the warm water, milk, and yeast, and let it sit until the yeast is all foamy. Then I mix in the rest of the stuff, let it rise until doubled in size, and start following the directions at Step 2. I also just roll the dough into 12 balls and let them rise in a 9x13 inch pan instead of making them into crescents.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

INGREDIENTS
1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
1/2 cup warm milk
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 egg
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, softened

DIRECTIONS
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 degrees F (200 degrees C).

3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden.

MmmMmmMmm...I got in a baking mood yesterday and made some pumpkin pie to sort of celebrate it almost being fall. Well, ummm. I don't think it was the recipe but it didn't exactly turn out right. Didn't stop me from squirting a bunch of whipping cream on top and eating it anyway! haha. Baking and I aren't good friends. But I think I could do these rolls. Thanks my pregnant friend! :)
