Keri's Dinner Rolls
Submitted by: Keri
2 T yeast
1/2 c very warm water
2 c scalded milk
1/4 c butter
1/3 c sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
6 c flour
1) Sprinkle yeast into bowl of warm water. Dissolve (set aside for about 5 minutes).
2) Melt butter & add sugar, salt and scalded milk.
3) Beat eggs & add to milk mixture. Combine with yeast mixture and stir
4) Add flour to liquid mixture and stir 'til well mixed into sticky dough.
5) Cover the bowl of dough with a lightweight dishcloth so the top of the dough doesn't get dry. Let dough rise in warm, draft free place for about 1 hour, or 'til double in size.
6) Put tons of flour on the counter top preparatory for pile of dough. Flour hands and divide the dough in half.
7) Put chunk of dough onto floured surface/counter. (Dough is very sticky)
8) Dust the top of the dough and your hands with flour. Press the chunk of dough into a circle about the size of frisbee.
9) Cut pie-fashion--you know, triangles. First cut the circle in half horizontal and verticle, then cut each of those halves into about three triangles . . . so you have about a dozen triangles, but no need to be exact.
10) Now roll into a roll! Start at the wide end of the triangle, of course, and roll it to the point--you know into a crescent shape.
11) Place the crescents onto greased baking sheets a couple of inches apart. Let rise for 1 hour. (You can let them rise for 1 1/2 hours if you want, but 1 is fine).
12) Bake @ 400 degrees for 10 minutes, 'til lightly brown on top.
13) Brush about 1/2 tsp. butter on top of each roll with a pastry brush as soon as you pull them out of the oven.
Use this recipe for great cinnamon rolls too and make sure to give me most of the credit.
