Homemade Dinner Rolls
4 1/2 - 5 1/2 c. white flour
1/4 c. sugar
1 T yeast
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 c. milk (I used skim)
1/2 c. water
1 T butter
Combine 2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Heat the milk, water and butter to warm. Add to dry ingredients. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Add 2 eggs and beat on high for 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.
Turn onto a floured counter or cutting board and knead for 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top of the dough. Cover and let rise until double. Punch dough down. Turn onto floured surface. Divide into 24 balls of dough and place in 2 greased 9x13 pans. Cover with a clean dish towel and let rise until double. Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter while still hot.
I had Eric make the homemade butter by shaking it in the jar. It was his first time making butter! He's learned so many things since he's met me... *grin*
Cherry Jam has quickly become a favorite at our house! I've made several batches this summer!
The crockpot dinner was a medley of ham, red skinned potatoes. baby carrots and corn in a broth of water and bacon salt.
