60 Minute Dinner Rolls
60 Minute Dinner Rolls are soft and tender yeast rolls that are made from scratch - start to finish - in just 1 hour!
- 1/4 cup low-fat milk
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup butter divided
- 3 1/2 teaspoons dry active yeast
- 3/4 cup warm water 105F – 115F
- 2½ –3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Grease a 12-cup muffin tin; set aside.
- In a small saucepan, stir milk, sugar, and 2 tablespoons butter together. Heat over low heat just until butter melts and sugar dissolves. Cool to about 100-105 F.
- Pour the milk mixture into the bowl of a stand mixer.
- Add the yeast and warm water. Let stand for 5-10 minutes, or until yeast is foamy.
- Add 2 cups flour and salt to yeast mixture. Using a dough hook, mix on low speed for about 1 minute.
- With the mixer still going, add remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time. Mix about 1 ½ minutes, or until dough starts to clean the sides of the bowl.
- Knead on low speed for about 2 more minutes, or until dough is smooth and elastic – the dough will still be slightly sticky to the touch.
- Place dough in a greased bowl, turning it to grease the top. Cover the dough with a clean, dry dish towel.
- Let it rise in a warm place, free from draft, for about 15 minutes.
- Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface, and divide into 12 equal pieces.
- Form each piece into a ball and cut each ball into thirds.
- Place 3 dough balls in each muffin cup.
- Cover the muffin pan with the dish towel, and let the dough rise for about 15 minutes.
- Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Set aside
- Bake at 425ºF for 9-12 minutes, or until the rolls are golden brown.
- Brush rolls with melted butter.
- Remove from pans, and cool on wire racks.
