I love to bake, esp. on cold, icy days, nothing seems to warm the house like bread rising! It's a weakness of mine, like chocolate! This is my new all time favorite roll recipe, it's easy, not too bad on time and the end result is a little bite of heaven, they melt in your mouth! So, I thought I'd share the recipe today. Any herbs can be used, but our favorite is garlic and oregano.
1 pkg. yeast
1 1/2 c. warm water
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. salt
1/2 c. melted butter, divided
5 c. all purpose flour, divided
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 c. Parmesan cheese
herbs of choice
Dissolve yeast in 3/4 warm water, add sprinkle of sugar in large bowl, let stand 5 min. till yeast bubbles. Add remaining water, sugar, egg, salt, 1/4 c. butter and 2 1/2 c. flour. Add remaining flour, a cup at a time to form a soft dough. Turn out onto floured surface and knead till elastic. Place in greased bowl, covering all sides and allow to rise for 1 hour in warm place. Preheat oven to 375. Combine remaining butter with garlic and herbs. Punch dough down and turn out onto floured surface. Roll out and cut into rolls or biscuits. Place on baking sheets, baste with butter mixture and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake 15 min. or till golden brown. Makes about 15 rolls.
These rolls are a must if you enjoy making yeast breads, so easy! Glad to have so many comments on my clipboards, thank you so much! They are fun to make and I'm looking forward to making the CP winner one too! I'll leave that giveaway open till the last day of February, hopefully by then our weather will be back to normal and we can look towards spring! I'm ready, but will miss my baking days.....
