Sweet Dinner Rolls

This is quite simply one of my "go to recipe" for holidays, potlucks, and get togethers.

Audrey's Sweet Dinner Rolls (adapted from the Sweet Dinner Rolls recipe on

1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup warm milk
1 egg
1/3 cup butter, softened

1/3 cup honey
1 tsp salt
3 3/4 cups bread flour
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast

1. Place warm water, milk, egg, butter, salt, bread flour and yeast in bread machine. Select dough cycle. Press Start

2. When dough finishes, turn onto lightly floured surface. Divide into 16 wedges. Roll wedges into rolls. Place rolls in greased dish 13 x 9 inch dish(I use pampered chefs large pan-ungreased). Cover with Saran Wrap and  kitchen towel and allow to rise in dark warm space for 1 hr.
3. Preheat oven 400 degrees. Cook for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
Here are the directions illustrated: 

Directions: Measure warm water, milk, egg, butter, salt, bread flour and yeast. I purchase my bread flour in bulk when possible (unbleached king arthur flour), yeast in bulk (costco brand) and typically use unsalted butter for baking. Place all of these items in the bread machine.

When the dough cycle finishes, turn the dough on a lightly floured surface and divide into 15 wedges.

Cover with Saran wrap.
Cover with a dry clean towel.  Preheat oven to 200 degrees.  Place in oven and turn oven off.  Allow to raise for one hour.

Once raised, remove from oven and remove towel and saran wrap.  Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.  Bake for 10 - 15 minutes.

Leave on stone for  a few more minutes if you like the bottoms of the rolls to be more brown.

Enjoy :)
