Dinner rolls, one of the staples of life. The soft, light, yeasty goodness that accompanies many a holiday dinner. Before you reach for a package of frozen dinner rolls at your local grocery store, try making your own with this easy recipe! As this is my first post relating to Thanksgiving, I decided to start things out right by posting one of the best parts of the meal, which is the BREAD. The other recipes that I will post next week are family recipes that I did not invent, however, this recipe is entirely my creation! Mine! All mine! Hahahaha…….oh, am I still on? I hope that your family enjoys these recipes as much as we have through the years.:)
The Ingredients: 1 pkg. Fleischmann’s instant yeast, 1/2 cup hot water, 1/4 cup honey, 1 stick softened butter, 2 eggs, 4 cups King Arthur White Whole Wheat flour, 1 cup buttermilk, 2 tsp. salt.
Combine yeast and warm water in the bowl of your Kitchen-aid mixer, let sit for 5 minutes. Add softened butter and honey, mix until just combined. Drop in eggs one at a time (it helps to crack the eggs into your measuring cup), mixing until just combined after each one. Add the salt and mix until combined. Now add alternating amounts of milk and flour one cup at a time (1 cup of flour to 1/4 cup buttermilk), when all the flour is used, change to the dough hook. Mix for 1-2 minutes on medium speed. Cover the bowl and allow to rise in a warm place for one hour.
Turn dough out onto a floured surface, cut into equal squares, form into desired shape. Cover and allow to rise for an additional hour. When the rising time is completed, remove covering and place rolls into a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes. Butter the rolls and serve while warm.
And here they are! Soft, warm and buttery!
