Homemade Sandwich Rolls

We were almost out of bread today and I couldn't get to the store because Logan is sick.  So, I decided to make sandwich rolls instead.  Here is a fairly easy recipe for them.  And everyone here seemed to enjoy them!  These are really soft and yummy. 


 Ingredients
1 1/4 cup warm milk
2 Tbsp. white sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast

3 1/2 cups all purpose flour plus flour for kneading, etc.
3/4 tsp. salt

2 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 egg, beaten

2 Tbsp. butter, melted for top after cooking

Directions
Add sugar and yeast to warm milk and let sit for 10 minutes, until frothy

Whisk or sift together the dry ingredients.

Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and pour in the milk/yeast mixture, melted butter and egg.  Combine until it makes a soft dough.  Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 7 - 10 minutes.  You might need to add more flour depending on how sticky the dough is.  Oil or butter a bowl and place dough in the bowl, making sure to roll the dough around the greased bowl.  Cover with a damp towel and let sit in a warm place until doubled.  It only took mine about an hour and a half.  

Take dough out of bowl.  Beat down.  Roll the dough out on a floured surface until it's about 3/4 inch thick.  Use a biscuit cutter or glass to cut circles.  I used a glass that was about 3" in diameter.  (I sprayed it with cooking spray before I began cutting).  Place dough circles on greased baking sheets and let rise again for 20 minutes.  Cook in oven that has been preheated to 350 degrees for 10 - 15 minutes or until golden.  Once they are out of the oven, brush them with the melted butter.

Yummo!
