Basic Dough/Sweet Dough

These two master recipes can be used in making several different things. I love to use them when make rolls the most though. I use the sweet dough for things like cinnamon rolls and other sweet treats and the basic dough for more savory things. If you have a stand mixer you can use that just as well. Sadly mine will not work over here but I also love making dough in the processor, it works very well. And if you do not have those well just use your hands, you can not beat that anyway! Basic Sweet Dough: 1-1/4 cup warm water 1 tablespoon instant yeast ½ cup warm milk 2 tablespoons sugar ½ teaspoon salt 2-1/2-3 cups all purpose flour 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, soft 1 egg 1.In a food processor add flour warm water, yeast, milk, salt, sugar and egg. Pulse mixture until dough is soft. In a large bowl add a few drops of sunflower oil. Roll dough around in oil making sure its all covered. Place a towel over the bowl and leave in a very warm place for an hour or until doubled. Basic Dough: 1-1/4 cup warm water 1 tablespoon instant yeast 1/2 cup warm milk 1/2 tablespoon sugar 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons butter, soft 2-1/2-3 cups all purpose flour 1. In a food processor add flour, warm water, salt, sugar, yeast and the milk. Pulse to obtain a smooth dough. Add the butter and continue to process. If the dough is to stick which it should be add more flour 1 tablespoon at a time. In a large bowl add a few drops of sunflower oil. Roll dough around in oil making sure its all covered. Place a towel over the bowl and leave in a very warm place for an hour or until doubled. Punch down dough and leave for 30 more minutes.
