Dinner Rolls - How Sweet They Were

When this recipe popped up in my Google Reader, I knew that I had to make it. Sweet Dinner Rolls, posted by Daily Deliciousness, is a great dinner accompaniment. I made them one evening when we were having marinated steak. Their sweetness was a wonderful foil to the saltiness of the marinated meat.

The only change I would make next time would be to cut the sugar amount to 1/4 cup to see if it impacts the sweetness. They were just a bit to sweet for me but Mr. Gooch loved them.

Since it was just Mr. Gooch and I, I separated the pan full of rolls into 3 Ziploc bags and froze 2 for later use.

Sweet Dinner Rolls
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup warm milk
1 egg
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1/4 cup butter, softened (for topping rolls)

Place water and milk in microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute or until liquids reach (110 degrees F/45 degrees C). Pour liquids into mixer bowl; add sugar and stir to dissolve. Add in yeast and let set for 10-20 minutes to proof (the mixture will be foamy).

Attach the bowl to the mixer and mix on low speed adding the salt, 1/3 cup butter and egg. Once well mixed add in the flour 1/4 cup at a time. Remove the paddle attachment and attach the dough hook. With the mixer; knead the dough for 5-10 minutes or until smooth and elastic.

Remove the dough from the bowl and shape into desired shape. Cover with a clean towel and let rise in a warm place for an hour. (You can place a bowl of very hot tap water in the bottom of your stove and place the rolls on the rack above it *this is what Daily Deliciousness recommended and it worked like a charm!). Gently brush the tops of the rolls with half of the remaining softened butter.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and bake the rolls for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Upon removing the rolls from the oven brush them with remaining softened butter once again.
