Rolls made easy

Today my day started at 4:30 am in the kitchen. Not too unusual, it normally starts in the kitchen at 5am but today I was wide awake and decided to get started. The first thing I did was make the rolls for my Thanksgiving bread tray. I’ve been using this recipe for a very long time, have even made them with the preschoolers way back when! It┬ácomes from┬áthe preschool cookbook. If you’ve never tried a yeast dough before, this is a simple one and it always comes out nicely. Give it a try! I made my rolls smaller but not too small and I got 40 rolls, it makes a lot! Enough to send home for care packages after dinner! Enjoy!

A big hug and THANK YOU for visiting my blog! I enjoy the blog and sharing my recipes/ideas and I’m so appreciative to all who read it! I wish you and yours a very Happy Blessed Thanksgiving!

Easy Rolls (called 20 minute rolls in cookbook)

2 cups warm water (it is just right when you can’t hold your hand under the water)

2 pkgs yeast

2 eggs

6 and 1/2 cups flour

1/3 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter, melted

pinch of salt

Mix the water and yeast, let stand 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and beat well. Knead for 5 to 10 minutes. If you own a Kitchen Aid, you can allow that to do the kneading for you but I enjoy the kneading process. It is just right when the dough is not too sticky and very smooth. Let stand for 20 minutes. Shape into rolls. If you want them big, you can get 24 rolls. Place in a greased baking pan. Let rise for at least 45 minutes or up to an hour. They should be doubled in size. Bake for 15 minutes at 350 or until golden brown. ENJOY!
