They only take 35 minutes from start to hot out of the oven!
And would you believe they only have 7 ingredients? Yes. You can do this!
I have felt like rolls were such a luxury...
they took so long to mix, knead, rise,
roll and rise...2 or 3 hours later...
rolls that only last 10 minutes
once everyone smells them!
Seriously, these are so easy, I make them 2-3 times a week!
I've stopped buying bread.
Not convinced yet?
Step 1: Ingredients and directions!
Preheat your oven to 400*
In a bowl or mixer add these 4 ingredients:
1 3/4 Cup warm water
1/2 cup oil (I use canola)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 Tablespoons of dry active yeast (see picture of what I use)
Stir up that mixture and let it sit for 15 minutes. (see Pictures of yeast rising after just 1 minute, and at 15)
It will rise right in your bowl! While this is rising, gather the remaining ingredients:
Then add these 3 ingredients:
1 teaspoon of salt
5 1/2 to 6 cups of flour
Mix. (I use the kitchenaid and the bread dough hook...mix it about 2 minutes)
(When I made these rolls in Utah, I needed about 5.5 cups of flour,
in North Carolina I need 6 cups because of the humidity)
The dough will still be slightly sticky.
Step 2: Roll them out!
You've got your basic dough, now roll them out!
I've like to do little balls about the size of a ping-pong ball.
They make darling little sandwiches!
let them rise on the pan for 10 minutes.
Then Bake them 400* for 10 minutes
Step 3: EAT THEM!
Now there is no excuse!
You can have fresh rolls everyday!
We love them so much,
I haven't bought bread in months...
my kids love little roll sandwiches!
I usually double the recipe...might as
well make a few days worth!
Also you can freeze the dough and pull it
out when you are ready to bake!
I thaw it overnight in my fridge set it on the
counter about 10 minutes before I am
ready to roll out.
Then roll, rise and bake!
Step 4: Cinnamon Rolls anyone?
Cinnamon rolls...same recipe, just roll your dough flat. Spread butter, cinnamon and brown sugar all over it and then roll it into a long tube. Cut the tube into 2 inch pieces. Place on sheet or in bundt pan and rise and bake same as the rolls! Top with frosting!
We've used it for pizza dough, pull apart bread and ham & cheese pockets!
This is what Thanksgiving is all about!
Delicious rolls in very little time or effort!
