I love rolls. They are a welcome sight whether it is spring, summer, winter or fall. Rolls are also great at making the house smell cozy and inviting. I wanted to share my favorite recipe.

Adding Warm Milk

Adding Warm Milk

1) Add water, milk, butter, sugar, salt and yeast to a large bowl. Stir well and let sit for 6-8 minutes or until you see the mixture begin to foam.

2) Add 5 cups of flour and mix until you have a shaggy mess. The dough will not have formed a ball yet. It will be just shy of coming together.

3) Add the remaining flour a 1/2 at a time, blending until smooth. Knead by hand for 10 minutes or by machine for 4 to 5 minutes until the dough of ball is soft and smooth. It should be elastic and slightly tacky to the touch.

4) Spray a bowl with cooking spray. Place the dough inside and spritz the top with cooking spray. Cover with plastic wrap and allow the dough to sit for 1 hour or until the dough is full and puffy.

5) Gently deflate the dough and pat out to a rough rectangle about 8 inches by 12 inches. Cut the dough into 4 long strips, then cut each strip into 6 portions for a total of 24 dough balls. With one hand, put your index finger and thumb together forming an O. Push the dough through that O forming a smooth top and a small seam that will become the bottom of the roll. You may need to spritz your hands with cooking spray so the dough doesn’t stick.

6) Place the rolls in a lightly greased or parchment lined pan. (I used a 9X13 inch pan.) After the rolls are in the pans, cover again with your plastic wrap and let rise at room temperature for another hour, or until well rounded and full looking. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
7) Bake the rolls for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and an internal thermometer reads 190°F. You can brush the baked rolls with melted butter if desired. Serve warm, store leftovers in a plastic bag for up to 3 days.
