Maddox Ranch House Rolls
2 Tablespoons of yeast (not rapid rise)
1/2 cup of warm water
1 1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup (or 4 ounces) of butter
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
3 large eggs
5 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
In a saucepan, melt the butter and add the milk and salt. Scald but do not boil. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
In a measuring cup, mix the yeast and warm water. Add a pinch of sugar from the 1/2 cup measure and stir. Let the yeast sit and proof for a few minutes.
In a large bowl, mix the yeast mixture, eggs, sugar, milk mixture and flour just until blended and no lumps of flour remain. Do not over mix. The dough will be sticky and very loose.
Let the batter/dough raise until double (about 90 minutes). Mine took only 50 minutes to double in size; I live at high altitude so my dough raises quickly.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spoon it into greased muffin tins and let it raise again until doubled in size.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown. I'd go a little more on the underdone side.
Cool on a wire rack. Serve with honey or raspberry butter.This recipe makes about 24 dinner sized rolls.
