60 Minute Rolls

When I found this recipe over at Lick the Bowl Good, I just knew they were for me! I am a huge procrastinator, especially when it comes to making dinner, I usually put off even thinking about it until 4:00 pm and by then I have to scramble. So, you can imagine my relief when I found these, LIFE SAVER! And it doesn't hurt any that they are super yummy!

60 Minute Rolls
(24 good sized rolls)

1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
2 t salt
3 T butter
3 packages (0r 6 3/4 t) active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
5-6 cups flour

In a small sauce pan, stir together milk, sugar, salt and butter.  Heat over low until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves.  Cool to lukewarm.

Dissolve yeast in warm water in mixing bowl.  Add the lukewarm milk mixture and 4 1/2 cups of flour to the yeast mixture and mix, using the dough hook, on low for about a minute.  With the mixer still going, add the remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time. (I didn't need to add all of it, so just add until the dough starts to clean the sides of the mixing bowl).  Continue mixing for another couple of minutes or until the dough is smooth and elastic. (The dough will be slightly sticky to the touch.)

Place the dough into a greased bowl, turning to grease the top.  Cover the bowl and let the dough rise in a warm, draft free place for 15 minutes.  Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 24 equal pieces.  Shape each piece into a ball and place in a greased muffin tin or 9x13 pan. Each 9x13 pan will hold 12 rolls.  Cover the pans with a clean dish towel and let the rolls rise for 15 minutes.

Bake at 425 for 12 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown.  Brush the tops with melted butter when you take them out of the oven.

  8. I enjoyed making these rolls as they were easy to make, looked and tasted good.I will cut back on the amount of yeast I use as it was a little strong.I hope it doesn't increase the rising time too much.
