Dinner Rolls (Any shape you want!)
Heat the oven to 350°F
First thing is to warm the milk and melt the butter, etc.
- 1 cup milk
- 1 stick of butter, cut into pieces
- 1/4 sugar
- 1 tsp. sea salt
Heat on low until butter mostly melts.
Take off of the stove.
- 1 package or 2 1/4 tsp. active yeast
Sprinkle the active yeast onto the milk mixture, let it sit until softened, then stir.
- Flour – 3 1/2 to 4 cups
Stir in as must flour as you can by hand, then put out on a kneading surface and continue kneading until smooth, or use a stand mixer to need, adding flour by the 1/4 cup or 1 Tablespoon until it doesn’t need anymore and knead until smooth.
Form into a ball and put oil in the bowl, then turn the ball of dough upside-down there and swirl it around to
distribute the oil. Turn the dough right-side-up. Allow to rise until doubled, then make into shapes and bake when desired.
This can be put into a bag to slow rise in the fridge. Make it on day 1 and on day 2 use it. Bring the bag out and put the dough into an oiled bowl to come to room temperature, then punch down and shape and bake until golden brown.
This recipe makes about 12 large rolls.
