These yeast rolls are kind of a cross between a biscuit and a roll. They make the best sandwich rolls and go great with any meal. We love to have them for breakfast with ham, egg and cheese. They will keep for several days in the fridge or an airtight container. You can reheat them in the microwave and slather them with fresh butter and jam for a treat anytime. This is the quickest and easiest recipe for yeast rolls and my favorite to make. I love these rolls!
2 packages active dry yeast (1/4 ounce or 2 1/4 teaspoons each)
1/2 cup warm water
1 cup milk
4 tablespoons butter or 1/4 cup or 1/2 stick
1/4 cup white granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
Dissolve yeast in the 1/2 cup warm water. Set aside. Combine milk, butter, sugar and salt in a saucepan or bowl. Heat just till warm. (I do this about 1 minute in the microwave) Combine yeast and flour with milk mixture. Stir well with spoon. Cover and let rise 15 minutes in a warm place. (I turn on my oven to about 350 degrees and put this on top of the stove under the light for 15 minutes). When the 15 minutes is up, flour your hands, put some flour on your dough board and press the dough to about 1 inch thick. Cut out in circles. (I use a tin can for a cutter because we like these rolls big). Place on a sprayed cookie sheet. Let rise for 15 minutes. (I cover with dish towel). Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes. Makes about 15 rolls. Note: I brush these with melted butter before placing in the oven. Enjoy!
