Favorite Dinner Rolls
(Cuisine at home, April 2005, Issue 50, p. 41)


Makes: 35 - 45 Rolls (2 1/2 - 3 inch) Total Time: 3 1/2 Hours Rating: Intermediate

Proof:
2 pkgs. active dry yeast (4 1/2 t.)
2 cups warm water (110° - 115°)
Pinch of sugar

Whisk Together; Add Yeast Mixture to:
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup canola or corn oil
2 t. table salt

Stir in; Add, Knead, and Let Rise:
6 - 7 cups all-purpose flour

Proof yeast with sugar in water for 5 - 10 minutes, or until it "blooms" or swells.

Whisk eggs, sugar, oil, and salt together in a large bowl. Add yeast mixture; whisk to combine.

Stir 3 cups of flour into the egg mixture using a wooden spoon. Add more flour, 1/2 cup at a time; you may not need it all. When dough becomes too stiff to stir, turn it out onto a floured work surface and knead by hand.

Knead until dough is smooth but still soft, adding flour a little at a time if it is too sticky. Place dough in a bowl coated with nonstick spray. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, 1 - 1 1/2 hours.

Punch down dough and gather into a ball. With floured hands, shape pieces of dough into balls.

(For dinner rolls, make them a bit larger than a golf ball. For cocktail buns, shape them ping-pong ball size.

Hamburger buns should be slightly smaller than a baseball.) Arrange on greased baking sheets about 1/2" apart.

Cover with a towel and let rise again until doubled, about 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake rolls 25 - 30 minutes, or until golden, then top as desired, see right.

Cool slightly before serving — if you can wait that long! Immediately after baking, brush the rolls with melted butter, then sprinkle with a topping.

Choose one or several for variety: grated parmesan cheese; toasted fennel, sesame, or caraway seeds; poppy seeds; equal parts dried dill, sugar, and kosher salt; cinnamon-sugar.
