One of the reasons I love these rolls is because I can make them in about 1 1/2 hours start to hot-right-out-of-the-oven! They are light and have a wonderful flavor! These are my go-to rolls...they are made OFTEN at our house!
1 Tablespoon yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 cups butter or margarine, melted
1/4 cup instant nonfat dry milk powder
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup warm water
1/3 cup sugar
5 1/2 to 6 cups flour
Dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in the 1/2 cups of warm water. In your mixer add butter, eggs, milk powder, salt, water, sugar and 3 cups of the flour. Beat on medium speed for about 3 minutes or until smooth. Mix in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. (In my bosch I add flour until it starts "licking" the sides clean and most of the bottom) Let knead in mixer for 6-8 minutes. Divide into about 24 pieces and then shape into balls. (I just grab a chunk at a time of whatever size I like and place them in the pan!) Place in 2 9x13 greased pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30-45 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees for 17-20 minutes or until golden brown. After you take them out grab a stick of butter and slather the tops of them with it.
YUMMY! These are gobbled up at our house so fast...and they make wonderful bread from leftover turkey sandwiches too...just FYI!
