Buttery Dinner Rolls

It was a cold and rainy night last Thursday. That's no surprise, given that it was the end of September, and one of the rainiest months on record here. So I wanted hot dinner rolls. I started with a bread recipe in my Foods From Famous Kitchens cookbook (which is falling apart at the seams), tweaked it a tad, and had a winner of a recipe. How did I know it was a winner? Why, my littlest fussbudget went hunting for one for lunch on Friday, nuked it a few seconds, and happily munched it with some soup.

HOT BUTTERY DINNER ROLLS

1-1/2 cups very warm water
6 tsp yeast
4 cups flour
1-1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp dry milk powder
1/4 cup butter, cut into small pieces

Pour the water in your bread machine container or mixing bowl, sprinkle the yeast on top of it, and add the remaining ingredients in the order given. Mix according to the directions in my bread tutorial (see link to the right), knead once. let rise, and punch down. Divide the dough into 12 pieces and roll into balls. Place the balls on a lightly oiled baking tray and let them rise until approximately doubled in size, poke a dimple into the top of each, and put a little pat of butter in each dimple. Bake at 375F for 16 to 19 minutes, until they reach your desired degree of brownness.
