Mmmmmm. That's all there really is to say about these delicious rolls. They are soft and light and just a tad sweet - perfect nice and warm slathered in some butter. Ever since my success with the Hawaiian rolls I have been dying to make more fresh rolls and bread. I found the recipe for these rolls on Amber's blog, but I followed the instructions from All Recipes and kneaded the dough in my breadmaker. I also decided to try the crescent shape - for the most part it went well, but I think I let them rise too long because they came out huge! But hey, bigger is better, right? I halved this recipe and got 8 rolls.
Sweet Dinner Rolls
1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
1/2 cup warm milk
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1/4 cup butter, softened
Place water, milk, egg, 1/3 cup butter, sugar, salt, flour and yeast in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select Dough/Knead and First Rise Cycle; press Start.
When cycle finishes, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide dough in half. Roll each half into a 12 inch circle, spread 1/4 cup softened butter over entire round. Cut each circle into 8 wedges. Roll wedges starting at wide end; roll gently but tightly. Place point side down on ungreased cookie sheet. Cover with clean kitchen towel and put in a warm place, let rise 1 hour. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden.
