3 1/2 to 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour or bread flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, room temperature
1 teaspoon salt
1 package regular or fast-acting dry yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons)
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
1 large egg
Cooking spray to grease bowl and pan
1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
Directions to prepare Dinner Rolls :
In a large bowl, stir 2 cups of the flour, the sugar, 1/4 cup butter, salt and yeast with a wooden spoon until well mixed. In a 1-quart saucepan, heat the water and milk over medium heat, stirring frequently, until very warm and an instant-read thermometer reads 120°F to 130°F. Add the water mixture and egg to flour mixture. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed 1 minute, stopping frequently to scrape batter from side and bottom of bowl with a rubber spatula, until flour mixture is moistened. Beat on medium speed 1 minute, stopping frequently to scrape bowl. With a wooden spoon, stir in enough of the remaining flour, about 1/2 cup at a time, until dough is soft, leaves side of bowl and is easy to handle (dough maybe slightly sticky).
Sprinkle flour lightly on a counter top or large cutting board. Place dough on floured surface. Knead by folding dough toward you, then with the heels of your hands, pushing dough away from you with a short rocking motion. Move dough a quarter turn and repeat. Continue kneading about 5 minutes, sprinkling surface with more flour if dough starts to stick, until dough is smooth and springy. Spray a large bowl with the cooking spray. Place dough in bowl, turning dough to grease all sides. Cover bowl loosely with plastic wrap; let rise in a warm place about 1 hour or until dough has doubled in size. Dough is ready if an indentation remains when you press your fingertips about 1/2 inch into the dough.
Spray the bottom and sides of a 13×9-inch pan with the cooking spray. Gently push your fist into the dough to deflate it. Divide dough into 15 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball; place in pan. Brush with melted butter. Lightly spray sheet of plastic wrap with cooking spray; cover the pan loosely with the plastic wrap, sprayed side down. Let rise in a warm place about 30 minutes or until dough has doubled in size. Remove plastic wrap.
Move the oven rack to a low position so that top of the pan will be in the center of the oven. Heat the oven to 375°F. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a cooling rack. For a softer crust, brush tops of rolls with room-temperature butter, using a pastry brush. Serve warm or cooled.
After placing rolls in pan, cover tightly with foil; refrigerate 4 to 24 hours. Before baking, remove foil and cover loosely with plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm place about 2 hours or until dough has doubled in size. If some rising occurred in the refrigerator, rising time may be less than 2 hours. Bake as directed.
Cloverleaf Rolls: Grease 24 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray. Make dough as directed–except after pushing fist into dough to deflate it, divide dough into 72 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball. Place 3 balls in each muffin cup. Brush with butter. Cover loosely with plastic wrap; let rise in a warm place about 30 minutes or until dough has doubled in size. Bake as directed. Makes 24 rolls.
For dinner rolls, shape each piece of dough into a ball, pulling edges under to make a smooth top. Place balls, smooth side up, in greased pan.
