Quick Dinner Rolls

These can be started and on your table in a little over an hour. What’s better than that?

3 1/2 to 4 cups flour
3 Tbs. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 packages of yeast (4 1/2 tsps.)
1 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup butter

Measure the milk, water, and butter in a glass bowl – microwave for 2 minutes. It’s okay if the butter is not fully melted.

In a large bowl, mix 1 1/2 cups flours, sugar, salt and the yeast. Add the milk misture and mix briskly for about 2 minutes; stir in enough flour to make a soft dough. Turn dough out onto the floured countertop and knead until smooth. Lightly greas a 9 x 13 pan, plop the dough in, cover with a towel and let rise for about 20 minutes. Meanwhile preheat your oven to 350 degress.

Punch dough down, break off about 12-15 balls of dough, roll around in your hands to make nice, even rolls and place in the pan – it’s okay if they touch. Cover again with the towel and let rise for 15 minutes. Lightly sprinkle with flour and bake for about 35 minutes – until golden brown.
