“Golden Corral” Dinner Rolls
Adapted from CDKitchen
- 2-1/4 tsp active dry yeast
- 1/4 cup warm water
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1 cup milk, just to scalding hot (do not boil!)
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 4 ½ c bread flour (dough will be somewhat sticky, but the less you use, the lighter the rolls)
- Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in sugar. Let sit for about 5 minutes until foamy.
- Heat milk in microwave or in small saucepan on stovetop.
- Add sugar, butter, & salt to hot milk and stir until butter is melted. Cool until warm, but not hot.
- Pour milk mixture into bowl of stand mixer. Add the yeast mixture & egg and mix together.
- Mix in all-purpose flour, beating to form a soft dough. Knead with mixer for 5 minutes, adding extra flour, if needed.
- Place dough in oiled bowl, turning to coat with oil. Cover and let rise in warm, moist place until doubled in bulk, about 60 minutes.
- Slightly punch down dough. Divide dough into 12 pieces and shape into round rolls. Place them, not touching, in greased 13×9×2 baking pan.
- Cover loosely & let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 30–45 minutes.
- Bake at 375°F for 18–20 minutes or until tops are golden brown.
