Double Quick Dinner Rolls

I'm not going to lie. I'm a big fan of the frozen dinner rolls. They are easy. They aren't particularly quick, since they still have to rise, but at least I don't have to make and knead the dough.  Well, I made a batch of apple butter, which I thought would be fantastic on some rolls along side Sunday dinner. I didn't have any freezer rolls so I was going to have to make bread myself. I remembered that I have this recipe hiding in the cookbook my mom made for me when I left for college. This recipe is great. It's quick and easy. Yes, there is still rising involved but they really are quick. From start to finish it only takes about an hour to make these rolls. Yes, that is with the baking time included.  This dough isn't your normal bread dough. It's really sticky stuff and isn't going to hold it's own shape so these rolls are baked in a muffin tin. The recipe is supposed to yield  about18 rolls but I only have one muffin tin so I find it easiest to just make 12 extra large rolls.

 Double Quick Dinner Rolls
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1 packet yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons shortening
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
Dissolve yeast in milk. Mix in salt, egg, sugar, shortening and half of the flour to the milk. Mix in remaining flour. Let rise until double (about 30 mins). Preheat oven to 400F.  Stir down risen dough. Scoop dough into greased muffin tin filling wells about 3/4 full. Let dough rise to top of wells, (maybe 5-10 minutes). Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.

I'm sorry, but I've turned word verification on again. I hate trying to decipher the words just as much as anyone, but I'm getting way too much spam. I tried doing comment moderation as people suggested but the number or spam comments I had to sift through was ridiculous. I appreciate your comments and didn't want them to get lost among the spam. Hopefully, I can reduce the amount of spam and turn the word verification off soon.
