mangia mondays 90: sweet dinner rolls

hello, friends!
welcome to
a blog hop i co-host each week
with lisa from shine your light.

this week, i'm sharing
sweet dinner rolls
{that your family will go ga-ga for}

yield: 25-ish rolls

1 1/3 C hot water
3 C bread flour
1/4 C brown sugar
1 tsp salt
2 TBS dried milk
2 1/4 tsp instant yeast
3 TBS shortening
1 stick of butter, melted
1/2 C granulated sugar

1. add ingredients to bread machine in order of manufacturer's instructions.
this is the order i put mine in:
water, flour combined with sugar, salt & dried milk.
i make a well for the yeast & drop the shortening in the corners.

ALTERNATELY, you could activate the yeast in the hot water with the sugar & mix all of your ingredients in the bowl of an electric mixer with the dough hook attachment.

2. set to the dough setting on your bread machine & let it do its thing!

ALTERNATELY, mix on the mixer for 8 minutes, or until the dough is just sticking to the bump in the bottom of the bowl. remove from bowl to floured sheet pan. let rise in a warm place until doubled in size. make sure you loosely cover so the dough doesn't dry out.

3. when the dough is done, punch it down & roll it into golf ball sized pieces. place in an ungreased pie tin, cover & allow to rise until almost doubled in size.

4. combine the melted butter and sugar in a small bowl. spoon a little of the mixture over every roll. divide excess butter equally between the pie tins.

5. bake at 350 f. for 20-25 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.

these rolls are like crack...
they're SO good!
i cannot be held accountable if you stand in your kitchen
& eat an entire pan of rolls.
just sayin'.
