Pat's One Hour Rolls

My aunt is a great cook and she gave me this recipe a long time ago. I decided to make these rolls the other day and a friend said that this was the best bread he had ever eaten.

Pat's One Hour Rolls:
1/4 C. warm water
2 pkgs. yeast
1 Tbl. sugar (measure 1/4 C. sugar and take the 1 tbl. out of that)
put the above ingredients in a large bowl and let the yeast bloom.

Heat 1 1/2 C. milk
1 stick butter
1 tsp salt
the rest of the 1/4 C. sugar

Add 4 1/2 C. flour to the yeast and milk mixture. Stir to make a soft dough. Let rest 10 minutes.
Melt 1/4 C. butter in a 9x13 pan. Shape the rolls (makes about 20) and place in the pan, turn once. Let rise 30 minutes. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes.

My dough was very soft, and actually, I should have added a little more flour than the recipe called for this time.

I also melted a lot of butter in my pan, I didn't measure it but I'm sure it was more than the 1/4 C. that the recipe called for. See the butter oozing up around the dough...

These were so soft and buttery when they were done. My friend and his son ate them with shaved ham. We had ours plain with our meal. Really delicious either way!
