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...
