Yeast Rolls For Dinner Tonight!!!

To get back in the swing of things after the Holiday and a quick trip to Indianapolis I thought I would try these Honey Yeast Rolls that I saw at," Annie's Eats," one of my favorite sites. She said these were her all time favorite and they are good. The brushing with melted butter and honey as a glaze is yummy!! We did like them and it is a "do again " as one of my daughter-in-laws likes to say.

You will need:
2 1/4 t. instant yeast
1 C. warm water (105-115 degrees F)
1/4 C. honey
3 T. canola oil
1 1/4 t. salt
1 egg lightly beaten
4 C. bread flour
Vegetable cooking spray
2 T. butter, melted
2 T. honey

Using the large bowl of a stand mixer and the paddle attachment, combine the yeast and water. Add the honey, oil, salt, and egg and mix well. Add 3 C. of the flour and mix until the dough comes together in a sticky mass. Change over to the dough hook and at low speed add the last cup of flour. Knead at low speed for about 8 minutes. The dough should be smooth and elastic. 

I fill a heavy thick glass or crockery bowl with hot water and let it set a few minutes. Then I empty the water and dry the bowl well. Next I butter it and turn the dough onto it coating the dough well with butter. I cover it with plastic wrap and a clean towel to insulate it and hold the warmth for a good rise. It should sit for about 2 hours.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead about 30 seconds. Cover again with a clean towel and let rest for 10 minutes. Punch the dough down and divide it into 12 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a smooth ball and space evenly apart on a round lightly buttered 10" baking dish. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine the melted butter and honey and brush the rolls well using the entire mixture. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the tops are golden brown and the rolls are baked through. Cool slightly before serving.
