Buttery Dinner Rolls

Buttery Dinner Rolls

by Pam on November 27, 2012

I brought these rolls to a friends house for dinner recently.  I tried a recipe I found on The Baker Chick’s[1] site that looked easy and delicious.  Unfortunately, I ran out of time so I couldn’t let the rolls rise as much as I would have liked but they still turned out really delicious and everyone liked them.

Place all dough ingredients into the bread machine pan in the order listed making sure to only use 1 egg. Select the dough cycle and press start. Once the bread machine stops (it was one and a half hours on my machine). Grease a 9×13 glass baking dish or large round Dutch oven or baking pan. Divide dough into 12-15 pieces and shape each piece into a ball. Place 2 inches apart in the baking dish.

Cover with a clean dish cloth (don’t use plastic wrap). Let rise in a warm place 45 to 60 minutes or until doubled in size.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, beat remaining egg until blended; brush onto rolls. Bake until golden brown, about 17-20 minutes, rotating pans back to front and top to bottom halfway through. Melt 1-2 tablespoons of butter in the microwave; add the minced garlic, stir until well combined.  Brush the garlic butter over the top of the rolls; sprinkle with sea salt. Let rolls cool 10 minutes before serving.
