I made this recipe, adapted from the All Recipes Website, for our 2011 Christmas dinner. Though these are best warm, I froze them and reheated them just prior to dinner and they were a hit!
- 2 cups all-purpose or bread flour, or more if needed
- 2 ½ tablespoons Quick Rise Yeast
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Chopped fresh Rosemary to garnish
- Combine ¾ cup flour, un-dissolved yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Heat milk, water and butter until very warm but not hot. Add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, or for about 4 minutes, until smooth by hand. Scraping bowl occasionally. Add ¼ cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes.
- Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
- Divide dough into 12 equal pieces; shape into balls. Place in greased 8-inch round pan. Sprinkle with Rosemary.
- Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
- Bake in preheated 375 degrees F oven for 20 minutes or until done. Remove from pan; brush with additional melted butter, if desired. Serve warm.
