These are our ABSOLUTE FAVORITE ROLLS EVER! And they only take 2 hours from start to finish! I always bring these to family dinners and they are gone quickly. The recipe below makes about 12 small rolls, I usually double it for gatherings. Sometimes triple!
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 Tbs butter
- 2 cups all purpose white flour, plus another 1/2 cup or so for kneading
- 1 pkg rapid rise yeast (or 2 1/4 tsp)
- 2 Tbs sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
Measure out 1/2 cup milk and 1/4 cup water in a glass measuring cup, add your 2 TBS butter, then microwave for 30 seconds. Stir to melt butter. Test the temp of the liquid, it should be around 100 degrees. Microwave longer if need be.
In bowl of a stand mixer combine all dry ingredients by mixing on “stir” for 30 seconds, then slowly pour in liquid with mixer on low.
Preheat oven to 375 and let rolls rise 30 more minutes covered in the pan on top of the oven.
Thanks to my sister-in-law Rebecca for sharing her mom’s roll recipe with me! This was the first yeast bread I ever made and it began a love of bread/ roll making!!
