Dinner Rolls

Dinner Rolls - Makes 12

4 cups of All Purpose Flour
2 1/4 teaspoons  Yeast
1/3 cup of sugar
1 tsp of salt
1 cup of milk, slightly warm
1/3 cup of unsalted butter, softened. PLUS 3 Tbsp of unsalted butter, melted
3 egg yolks

Makes 12 Rolls

- In a small saucepan, add the milk and butter and warm it just enough until the butter melts (use thermometer to make sure the mixture reaches 120 degrees.)

- In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a dough hook, add the warm butter and milk mixture and sprinkle the yeast over the top. Let it sit for 5 minutes.

- To the yeast mixture, add the flour, sugar, egg yolks and salt and mix with the speed on low just until the flour is incorporated.

- Increase the speed to medium high and kneed the dough for about 5 to 7 minutes or until it is nice and smooth and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.

- Lightly grease a bowl with some oil and set aside.

-  Form dough into a ball and place it seam side down in the oiled bowl and grease the top and sides of the dough with a little oil. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place it somewhere warm for about an hour or until it has doubled in size.

- Transfer dough onto your work surface, (flour it a little if necessary) and deflate it.

- Cut the dough into 12 equal pieces.

- Lightly grease a 9" X 13” baking dish and set aside.

- Cover the dough pieces with a kitchen towel as you work with one piece at a time.

- Take each piece of dough and roll it in a smooth ball, place the ball seam side down in the greased baking dish, cover the baking dish with a kitchen towel so that the formed buns won’t dry out.

- Once you have all the rolls in the baking dish, cover them with plastic wrap and allow them to sit in a nice warm place for about an hour or until they are about one and half times bigger than the original size.

- Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375 degrees and place one of the oven racks into the center of the oven.

- Once the rolls have risen, bake them for about 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Brush them with melted butter immediately when they come out of the oven.

*Please note: You might need more or less flour. For example, you will need less flour if humidity is low and need more flour if the humidity is high.
