Thursday's Recipe

I thought I would share my favorite roll recipe. They are absolutely delicious! :) They're best eaten the same day they are made, and are wonderful warm from the oven.

Herb Dinner Rolls (makes 16 rolls)

1 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 Tbsp. yeast
1 tsp. salt
1 egg
2 Tbsp. melted butter
1/2 tsp. each: dried basil, oregano, thyme and dried rosemary crushed
3 1/4 cup bread flour
coarse salt, optional

In a large bowl put water, yeast, and sugar stir until yeast is dissolved. Add the salt, egg, melted butter and herbs stir until combined. Gradually add the flour. Knead the dough adding more flour if the dough is to sticky. Place in a greased bowl. Let rise for one hour or until doubled in bulk. Punch dough down. Shape into sixteen rolls. Place on a greased cookie sheet and let rise for 35 minutes, or until doubled. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned on top. Brush with butter and sprinkle with coarse salt. Enjoy!
