The holidays always scream homemade and love. Every year, I set my heart on making homemade rolls for my family and after three year’s of failure’s. I finally made homemade rolls that my family didn’t ask me to throw away and use our backup store bought rolls.
This year, I picked up and bought a Food Network magazine and I’m so happy that I did. I found a roll recipe that I was going to try two days early; just in case it was a disaster. It wasn’t and it was so easy! They taste delicious and will be making these again on Thursday.
Combined 3/4 cup flour, sugar, dry yeast and salt in a large mixer bowl and stir until blended. Combine milk, water and butter in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high in 15-second increments until very warm but not hot to the touch (120-130 degrees). Butter won't melt completely. Add to flour mixture.
Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scaping bowl occassionally. Add 1/4 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in just enough remaining flour so that the dough will form into a ball.
Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic and springs back when lightly pressed with 2 fingers, about 6 to 8 minutes. Cover with a towel; let rest for 10 minutes.
Cut dough into 12 equal pieces; shape into balls using your hands. Placed in greased 8-inch round or square pan. Cover with towel; let rise in warm place until double in size, about 30 minutes.
Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove by running a knife around the edges and invert onto wire rack, brush with additional melted butter, if desired. Serve warm.
