This recipe produces light, fluffy and buttery dinner rolls and makes your kitchen smell wonderful. The above rolls are actually frozen because I forgot to take a photo of them when they came out of the oven. They still look good though don't they?
Mix 1 C. of milk, 1/4 C. of sugar, 1/2 C. of softened butter, 2 beaten eggs, 2-1/2 tsp. of rapid rise yeast, 1/2 tsp. of salt and 4 C. of flour until you have a smooth ball of dough. Place it in a buttered bowl, cover it and let it rise until doubled. Dump it out onto a floured surface.
Roll it out to about 1/2 inch thickness.
Brush it with butter.
Fold it in half.
Slice it into 1 inch strips.
Tie them in a knot.
Place them on a parchment covered cookie sheet and brush them with butter again.
Let them double. Bake them at 375 degrees for about 20-25 minutes until they are golden.
And just for good measure, I brush them with butter when I take them out of the oven.
