➤ To Make This Recipe, You Will Need The Following Ingrédients :
- 1/3 cup (78ml) warm water, 110 – 115 degrees
- 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
- 1/3 cup + 1/4 tsp (68g) granulated sugar
- 1 1/3 cups (315ml) whole milk, warmed to 110 – 115 degrees
- 3/4 cup (170g) salted butter, softened, divided
- 1 large egg*, at room temperature
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 4 1/2 cups (22.5 oz) all-purpose flour* (scoop and level to measure)
➤ To make this delicious Amazing Dinner Rolls :
In bowl of an electric stand mixer whisk together warm water, yeast and and 1/4 tsp sugar. Let rest 5 – 10 minutes until mixture is foamy.
Fit mixer with whisk attachment. Add in 1/3 cup sugar, warm milk, 5 Tbsp butter, egg and salt to yeast mixture. Blend (butter will remain separated at this point and that’s fine).
Add in 2 cups flour and mix until well combined.
Switch mixer to a dough hook attachment. Add remaining 2 1/2 cups flour and mix until dough is nearly smooth and is elastic, about 4 – 5 minutes (dough should be slightly sticky).
Transfer dough to a greased, large mixing bowl and cover bowl with greased plastic wrap. Allow dough to rise in a warm place, free from draft, until double in volume, about 1 1/2 hours.
Punch dough down all over. Divide dough into two equal portions. Shape each portion into a ball.
Roll each dough ball out on a lightly floured surface into a large circle about 13 – 14 inches across (try to keep dough as much of an even thickness as possible).
Spread each circle of dough evenly with 2 Tbsp softened butter.
Cut each circle into 4 equal quarters, then each quarter into 3 wedges (just imagine cutting pizza slices or pie slices). Roll each wedge up, beginning on wide (outside) edge.
Transfer rolls to a buttered 18 by 13-inch cookie sheet (the tip of the rolled wedge should be tucked on the bottom. Note that you can fit 3 rows of 8 rolls).
Cover rolls loosely with greased plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until double in size, about 1 hour.
During the last 15 minutes of rising preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Remove plastic wrap and bake rolls in preheated oven for 15 – 19 minutes until golden brown.
Remove from oven and brush with remaining 3 Tbsp butter (preferably melted). Serve warm or allow to cool and store in an airtight container.
➤ Pro Tips:
- Use a thermometer to ensure that your milk is at the right temperature. If it’s too hot, it can kill the yeast, and if it’s too cold, the yeast won’t activate properly.
- Letting the dough rise in a warm, draft-free place is essential for a successful rise. You can create a warm environment by preheating your oven to the lowest setting, turning it off, and then placing the covered bowl inside.
- Be patient when kneading the dough. It may take longer than you expect to get a smooth and elastic texture, but the extra effort is worth it for perfectly fluffy rolls.
If you have any leftover rolls, store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. You can also freeze the rolls for up to 2 months. To reheat frozen rolls, simply wrap them in foil and bake in a 350°F oven for 10-15 minutes, or until heated through.
