Aunt Judy's FAMOUS rolls.

Have you made these yet??

If you haven't made them yet and you didn't grab the recipe off my old blog, here it is again. I made several pans for enrichment the other night. After they were all made I realized I put in less than half the yeast called for in the recipe. The great thing about these rolls is you really can't mess them up. Even without the extra yeast they were still good.

Some people are really intimidated by making bread. Don't be! There's nothing as wonderful as homemade bread. Most of the bread recipes I post will include these step by step directions . . . just in case any of you think you "can't" make bread. : )

Start off by combining 1/2 cup warm water, 2 Tbsp yeast, and a sprinkle of sugar. Set it aside and while you work on other steps, it will turn into this:

While yeast is getting bubbly, combine 1 1/2 cups milk and 1 Tbsp butter in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave about 90 seconds or until butter is melted.

In a large bowl, combine 2 eggs, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1 tsp. salt. Wisk together.

To the egg mixture, slowly wisk in the milk mixture. Then pour in the yeast mixture. After that is all combined, add 4 1/2 cups bread flour one cup at a time until mixed well. Mix until just combined--don't overmix. Dough will be very sticky.

Cover the bowl with a dishcloth and let rise until it reaches the top of the bowl.

Roll out dough until a little less than a 1/2 inch thick. Cut circles out--I use a large cutter for bigger rolls.

Melt 1/2 stick butter and pour into a bowl. Dip each circle halfway into the bowl. Lay down buttered half on pan, and fold in half.

Once your pan is full, cover and let raise until doubled in size like this:

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes.

Now, just try not to eat them all before dinner even starts!

Aunt Judy's Famous Rolls
1/2 cup warm water
2 Tbsp yeast
sprinkle sugar

1 1/2 cups milk
1 Tbsp butter

2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt

4 1/2 cups flour

Combine warm water with yeast and sprinkle of sugar. Set aside. In a microwave safe bowl combine milk and butter. Heat for 90 seconds or until butter is melted.

In a large bowl combine eggs, sugar, and salt. Slowly wisk in the hot milk mixture. Stir in the yeast mixture. Add flour and stir just until combined.

Cover with a dishtowel and let raise until it reaches the top of the bowl. Then dump out bowl onto floured surface. You may have to lightly work a little flour into the dough. Roll out until about 1/2 inch thick. Cut into circles. Dip each circle halfway into melted butter, then place buttered half on tray and fold circle in half. Let raise until double.

Bake at 350 for 9 - 11 minutes.
