This is how I roll…

Now that the song is in your head…let’s talk home made dinner rolls! I followed the Fleischmann’s Classic Dinner Roll recipe using the Active Dry Yeast Pack. Remember, the red and yellow package your mom or grandmother always used to have in the cubbord? Ahh…memories….
Let’s Start:

1 envelope Fleischmann’s® Active Dry Yeast
1/4 cup warm water (100° to 110°F)
2 to 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter OR margarine, softened

Put it Together:

Soften yeast in 1/4 cup warm water in a large mixing bowl.  Let stand 5 minutes.  Add 1 cup flour, sugar, salt, milk and butter.  Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer.  Add 1 cup flour and beat on high speed of mixer for 2 minutes.  Add in enough additional flour (if needed) to make a soft dough.

Turn dough on lightly floured surface and knead 2 to 3 minutes.  Place dough in a greased bowl, turning once to coat.  Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place for 30 minutes or until doubled.

Punch dough down and divide dough into 12 equal pieces.  Shape into balls.  Place in greased 8-inch round pan.

Pour a 1-inch depth of boiling water into large pan on bottom rack of cold oven.  Set rolls on rack above water. Cover. Close oven door; let rise 30 minutes or until doubled.  Uncover rolls; remove pan of water and rolls from oven.

Preheat oven to 375°F.  Bake rolls for 20 to 25 minutes, or until done.  Remove from pan.  Serve warm.

mmm…warm just out of the oven
