Ingredients

3 tablespoons warm water (105°F to 115°F)

1 (1/4-ounce) package active dry yeast

1/4 teaspoon sugar

3/4 cups milk

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter cut into chunks

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup sugar

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

3 to 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

 

Land O Lakes® Butter melted, if desired

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Place warm water in bowl; stir in yeast and 1/4 teaspoon sugar until dissolved. Let stand 5-10 minutes or until mixture starts to foam around edges.

  2. STEP 2

    Place milk and butter in 1-quart saucepan; cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until butter is almost melted.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine 1/4 cup sugar and salt in bowl. Add warm milk mixture; mix well. Add egg; beat at medium speed until well mixed. Check the temperature in the bowl. It should be less then 115°F. If it is warmer, let mixture cool slightly. Add yeast mixture; continue beating until well mixed. Add 2 cups flour; beat until mixture is smooth.

  4. STEP 4

    Stir in enough remaining flour with wooden spoon, 1/2 cup at a time, until dough is easy to handle. Let dough rest 5 minutes.

  5. STEP 5

    Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead about 5 minutes until smooth and elastic, adding more flour if dough is sticky. Place into greased bowl; turn greased side up.

  6. STEP 6

    Cover; let rise in warm place 45-60 minutes or until doubled in size. Dough is ready if indentation remains when touched.

  7. STEP 7

    Punch down dough. Divide dough in half. Cut each half into 9 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball. Place balls onto large greased baking sheets. Cover with plastic food wrap; let rise 30-45 minutes or until almost doubled in size

  8. STEP 8

    Heat oven to 350ºF.

  9. STEP 9

    Bake 12-14 minutes or until light golden brown. Brush warm rolls with melted butter, if desired.

Just like my Mom makes, delicious! My only complaint is that I doubled the recipe, and there still wasn't enough of these rolls!
