Melissa's Cuisine: Quick and Fluffy Dinner Rolls

Quick and Fluffy Dinner Rolls

Are you in charge of bringing bread to Christmas dinner this year?  If so, this is a great recipe for you to make!  It's really quick and delicious. 

I was intrigued by the steps of this recipe, I've never let rolls rise in the oven and then leave them in the oven to bake before.  To be honest, I really didn't know how it would turn out.  I thought I'd give it a try and see what happened, and to my amazement, it worked perfectly!  In less than an hour, I had fresh baked yeast rolls on the dinner table.  I served these with a piping hot bowl of Zuppa Toscana.  This is definitely a recipe that's fast enough for a weeknight dinner, and I think it will quickly become a favorite.
Quick and Fluffy Dinner Rolls

Makes 12 large rolls

You will need:
3/4 cup milk
4 Tablespoons butter
3/4 cup hot water, 110 degrees
4 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
4 to 4-1/2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon yeast
1 Tablespoon butter, melted

1.  In a microwave safe bowl, combine milk and butter.  Microwave on high for 1-1/2 minutes.

2.  Preheat oven to 170 degrees while you make the rest of the dough.

3.  Pour your warmed milk mixture and water into the bowl of your mixer.  Add the sugar, salt, and 2 cups of flour.  Mix for 1 minute.

4.  Add in the yeast and remaining flour 1 cup at a time, mixing as you add flour.  You have enough flour when the dough comes away from the edges of the bowl and forms a ball.

5.  Mix on medium speed for 5 minutes.

6.  Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it sit for 5 minutes.

7.  Divide dough into 12 equal pieces and gently round them into balls.

8.  Place dough balls in a greased 9x13 pan.

9.  Put the pan in your preheated oven and let them rise for about 20 minutes, or until doubled.

10.  Leaving the pan in the oven, increase oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake for 15 minutes. 

11.  Brush the top of the rolls with melted butter right after removing them from the oven.
