Dinner Rolls

So...I don't have a lot of Thanksgiving type recipes on my blog, but today I was thinking I'd do a post linking to a couple of recipes that I have that would go great with your Thanksgiving meal.  As I was looking through the recipes, I realized that the pictures that go with my favorite rolls were REALLY bad!!  So, I made some rolls this afternoon so that I could take some more pictures.  I am going to re-post the recipe with these much improved (but still not great) pictures!

 This recipe was adapted from a recipe my friend Molly gave me, that is why they are aka as Molly's rolls.  I adapted the recipe to make a smaller batch that I could mix in my Kitchen aide.   These rolls really are quick, easy and so light and fluffy :)

Dinner Rolls aka Molly's rolls

1 cup warm water
1 cup warm milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 package yeast(2 1/4 teaspoon)
1/3 cup oil
1/2 T salt
1 egg

Directions: In mixer combine yeast, sugar, and warm water; let grow until bubbly(about 5 minutes). Add milk and mix. Mix in oil and egg. Slowly add 2 cups flour, mix and then add salt. Add 1/2 cup flour at a time until it comes away from side of bowl. Let rise in mixing bowl for about 30 minutes. Form rolls as desired and place on a greased cookie sheet. Let rise and additional 30 minutes. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes. (Rotate pans after 7 minutes.) Brush hot rolls with melted butter.

  1. Is the flour bread flour or all purpose? I made these tonight and they were delicious, although the dough was sticky so I think I needed more flour. I used six cups.

    1. I just use all-purpose flour. I'm glad you enjoyed them. Thanks for the comment :)

  2. About how much additional flour would you say you used?

    1. I probably added another 2 1/2 to 3 cups of flour...so 4 1/2 - 5 cups total...ish :)

  3. And how many rolls does it make?

  4. Can you half this recipe?


THANKS for visiting!!
