Soft, melt-in-your- mouth is how I'd describe these rolls. So yummy and really quite easy to make. You know you want to try them. . . . .
LION HOUSE ROLLS
2 cups warm water (110-115 degrees)
2 tbs dry yeast
2 tsp salt
2/3 cup nonfat dry milk (instant or non-instant)
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter or shortening
6-1/2 - 7 cups flour
In a large bowl, combine water and milk powder, stir until dissolved.
Add yeast, sugar, salt, butter, egg, and 2 cups flour. Mix on low speed until ingredients are wet. Add remaining flour a little at a time until dough forms a ball and cleans the sides of the mixing bowl. (Dough should be soft, but not overly sticky, and not stiff.)
Place dough in a greased bowl. Cover with greased plastic wrap and allow to rise in a warm place until double in size (1 hour or so).
After the dough has risen, punch down, and form rolls into desired shape.
Place on a greased baking sheet and let rise again until double in size.
Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until browned.
Notes: I grease my bowl, plastic wrap, and baking sheet with non-stick spray.
