Sweet Dinner Rolls

My Thanksgiving recipe!

1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup warm milk
1 egg
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1/4 cup butter, softened

Combine all ingredients reserving the 1/4 cup of butter. Knead for 5 minutes in a stand mixer. Let rise for 30 minutes. Divide dough in half. Roll each half into a 12 inch circle, spread 1/4 cup softened butter over entire rounds. Cut each circle into 8 wedges. Roll wedges starting at wide end; roll gently but tightly. Place point side down on ungreased cookie sheet. Cover with clean kitchen towel and put in a warm place, let rise 30-45 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden.

Works great to make dough let it rise the first 30 minutes. After rolling out the dough and forming the rolls you can freeze the rolls. It works best to put them on a cookie sheet for the first 30-45 minutes then you can put them in a ziplock bag. That way they don't sick together and freeze as one big ball. Then just pull them out like you would Rodes dough to thaw and rise(about 3-4 hours).

Ok, Bread has never been my thing, but you might just inspire me to try it - especially if I can freeze them and have some for later!
