The Perfect Rolls

These little soft and fluffy clouds are the perfect side dish. Yesterday I made a pot of potato soup and these to accompany it. I like to melt some butter, add a bit of honey and mix it then brush the tops after they come out of the oven. We have a restaurant in Tennessee called O’Charleys and they are famous for their rolls with honey butter and these taste identical.

1-1/4 cups warm milk
2 teaspoons yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
3-1/2 cups all purpose flour

1/4 cup butter, softened
1 tablespoon honey

1. In a bowl add 1/4 cup warm milk, 1 tablespoon of sugar and yeast. Allow to sit until frothy, about 5 minutes.

2. In a large mixing bowl add flour and salt. Mix in egg, butter, remaining sugar and a yeast mixture, mix well. Carefully add a little of the milk until a dough like consistency has formed, mix into a ball. Add a bit of oil to hands them rub all over dough ball not working into the dough. Place in a large bowl, cover and allow to sit in a warm place for an hour.

3. Punch dough down then break off and roll dough into balls the size of an egg. Place on a non-stick baking mat or greased baking sheet then cover and allow to sit in a warm place for 45 minutes.

4. Pre-heat oven to 400F. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden. In a small bowl add butter and honey, mix well. Brush the tops of rolls with the mixture and serve.

Yields: 18 servings

*by the way I have noticed that some of my older post have jumbled up in 1 long paragraph instead of the original format. I have no idea why and I have not had the time to check it out or fix it so bare with me please.

I have been enjoying some of my homemade pumpkin spice lattes already, yummy.
