Quick Rolls

November 4, 2008

These are great when you want rolls and you want them fast. They come from the Ivory Family Favorites Cookbook. I think rolls are a labor of love. They’re a lot of work (at least for me), and they’re gone so fast. But they’re so worth it.

2 T dry yeast
2 c warm water, divided
1 c instant powdered milk
1/2 c sugar
2 eggs
2 t salt
1/2 c butter, softened
6 c flour

Combine 1 cup of the warm water with the yeast; set aside. In mixing bowl, mix together the other cup of water with the powdered milk, sugar, eggs, salt, butter and 1 cup of the flour. Add the softened yeast and blend. Pour in remaining flour slowly while mixing and knead for 10 to 15 minutes. Place dough in an oiled bowl and let rise until double in size (about an hour). Punch down dough and divide in half. Roll out each half into a large circle on a floured surface and cut with a pizza cutter or knife into 12 segments. Roll up “croissant style” and place on greased cookie sheets. Let rise for 15 minutes, then bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes, or until golden.

*This tends to be a very sticky dough, so I like to give my counter a quick spray of Pam before I flour it.
