This recipe is supposed to be made with a bread machine. I don’t have a bread machine, but I have a kitchenaid mixer. I’ll post the real recipe, and then how I made it. These rolls were super yummy.
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
1.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.
2.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).
3.Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden.
Here’s what I did:
I made these the traditional way (dissolve yeast and 1 tbsp sugar in warm water, let sit for about 10 min. Meanwhile, warm milk in saucepan until it just bubbles. Remove from heat, stir in sugar and butter until melted and cool to lukewarm. In a large bowl combine yeast mixture, milk mixture and egg. Stir in flour a little at a time and put the dough on low on the bread hook in the kitchenaid for 8 minutes. (You could also knead it on a lightly floured surface for 8 minutes) Cover and let rise about 1 hr…punch down and then roll out. I baked at 375 for 15 minutes. 🙂
