Raise your hand if you like freshly baked bread.
Raise your hand if you like kneading.
…yeah, I didn’t think so.
*Note* These will go very well with tomorrow’s recipe, which is also the first recipe I took photos of with my brand new camera! I realized very quickly that my old camera was not going to cut it when it came to food photography. I had to take each photos about 15 times until it turned out right! So I took advantage of the Black Friday sales and bought myself a shiny new Nikon!
Anyway, back to the rolls…
Bread Machine Dinner Rolls
– 1 cup Warm Water
– 2 tbsp. butter
– 1 whole egg
– 3-1/4 cups of all-purpose flour
-1/4 cups sugar
– 1 tsp. salt
– 3 tsp. quick acting dry yeast
1. Place ingredients in your bread machine in the order they are listed, so that the dry ingredients float on top of the wet ingredients. Make a small dent in the top of the dry ingredients for the yeast.
2. Effortlessly push the dough button, and let the bread machine do all the work. Mine takes about an hour and a half to make dough, but every model is different.
3. When the dough cycle is complete, lay the dough out on your floured counter top. Stretch it out into a rectangle, but don’t make it too thin. Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough into 15 pieces.
4. Form the pieces into whatever shape you desire and place in round cake pans, or on a cookie sheet. Brush them with melted butter and then place them somewhere warm covered with a towel. Leave them alone for about 30 minutes. They should double in size!
5. Bake in an oven, preheated to 375 degreesF, for 12-15 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.
6. Burn your tongue while eating one straight out of the oven, it is totally worth it.
