Wow, this blog is kind of lame. But these dinner rolls are anything but! Jeff discovered this great recipe for us. He started making bread a while back in an effort to "contribute." It is a great contribution indeed!

Dinner Rolls...from Betty Crocker's Cookbook - Bridal Edition

3 1/2 to 3 3/4 C all-purpose flour or bread flour
1/4 C sugar
1/4 C butter or margarine, softened
1 tsp salt
1 pkg yeast
1/2 C very warm water (120-130 degrees)
1/2 C very warm milk (120-130 degrees)
1 large egg
Butter or stick margarine, melted, if desired

1. Mix 2 C of the flour, the sugar, 1/4 C butter, salt and yeast in large bowl. Add warm water, warm milk and egg. Beat with electric mixer on low speed 1 minute, scraping bowl frequently. Beat on medium speed 1 minute, scraping bowl frequently. Stir in enough remaining flour to make the dough easy to handle.
2. Place dough on lightly floured surface. Knead about 5 minutes or until dough is smooth and springy. Place dough in large bowl greased with shortening, turning dough to grease all sides. Cover bowl loosely with plastic wrap and let rise in warm place about 1 hour or until double. Dough is ready if indentation remains when touched.
3. Grease regular pan, 13x9x2 inches, with shortening.
4. Gently push fist into dough to deflate. Divide dough into 15 equal pieces. Shape each piece into ball; place in pan. Brush with butter. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise in warm place until double in size.
5. Heat oven to 375.
6. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
