My dad loved to cook! As as young girl, I remember he got a Campbell’s Soup Cookbook one year for Christmas and proceeded to make many recipes from that little book. He also loved making each recipe his own by adding different spices, wine, etc. to the mix! Maybe that’s where I also learned to change up the recipe?
These 60-Minute Rolls came into our house when he was in his older years … like late 60’s (he’d be 92 now if he was still with us). He originally found them in a Maine Cookbook … super-easy, very tasty yeast rolls that take 1 hour from start to finish. When the dough is patted out with your hands, and cut with a 2″ round cutter, they are then brushed with melted butter and folded over in 1/2 to make half-moon shaped rolls. They are delicious served with butter, or try honey-butter for a different taste. Either way, they are yummy. My family loves them and I know yours will too!
¼ cup warm water (110-120 degrees)
1 ¼ cups milk
¾ tsp salt
3 tbls sugar
¼ cup butter
3 ½-4 ½ cups flour
Raising dough tip – turn oven on to 400 for 1 minute – turn off and place dough in oven to rise. Works great every time! You will also need to turn the oven on again to 400 for 1 minute for the 2nd rising.
Yield: about 12-15 rolls
