1 pkg active dry yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
3 tbls softened butter
1 egg, beaten
3 1/2-4 cups flour
|Aren’t they gorgeous?|
Add 3 1/2 to 4 cups flour and mix until soft dough forms (should not be sticky).
Put the dough out onto floured board and knead a few times until smooth.
Place the dough in greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rise in warm place approx. 45 minutes.
Punch down and turn out onto floured board. Shape into 12 large or 20 small rolls and place in greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Let rise again about 30 minutes.
Bake 350 for 20 minutes. Brush tops of rolls with butter. Recipe is easily doubled.
*Sourdough Option – add 1 cup classic sourdough starter in place of the water, reduce flour to 2 1/2-3 cups, or until you have a soft dough as above, and proceed with recipe.
