The Best Rolls!!!

Thank goodness for Pinterest right!
I came across this recipe on Pinterest a few years back and had to try it.  Since then, this recipe has become my go-to recipe for rolls.  They taste AMAZING and are fast and easy to make.  There's only one problem though, they are soooo good that it is hard to stop eating them!

This recipe can be used for a lot of other recipes as I'll mention in the bottom of this post, and a few others later on. 

Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.  

Recipe from:  How does she?


1 1/2 cups milk
3/4 cup plus 1 tbsp sugar
1 egg
1 tbsp salt
2 tbsp yeast
2 cup warm water
9-10 cups flour

In a small bowl dissolve the yeast in the warm water along with 1 tablespoon of sugar, set aside.

In a microwavable bowl add milk, 3/4 sugar and one stick of butter (1/2 cup).  Microwave for  2 minutes.

Transfer the milk, sugar and butter mixture into a big bowl and add one to two cups of flour to cool it down a bit.  Then add egg, salt, and yeast mixture.  Mix well.

Incorporate flour, 2 cups at a time.  Mix well, cover, and let rise.

Divide dough in 4 balls.  Take each ball and roll it in a circle.  About 1/4 inch thick.   Smear some butter on top of each rolled circle.  Using a pizza cutter cut the circle in quarters, then do two more cuts in each quarter in order to end up with 12 triangles per circle.

Roll triangles beginning with bigger side first and finishing up with the tip.  Place rolls in a greased cookie sheet and let rise until double their size.  I usually let them rise for about 20-30 minutes.

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes.

Run a stick of butter on top of baked rolls for an extra buttery taste. Enjoy!

Did you make a lot of dough?  Don't want to make all the rolls?  
Well how about a dessert!

Just add a little bit of melted butter to the top of one of your rolled circles.  Sprinkle some cinnamon and sugar, then roll it (like making cinnamon rolls).
Using a knife, cut rolled dough in half, just don't go all the way so that the two pieces are still connected.
Grab both pieces of dough and twist together.  Form a ring and pinch ends together.
Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees.  

Frost with cream cheese frosting or your favorite glaze.  Enjoy!
