This is a Western Warmth stand-by. I've been making these rolls for years, because they are quick, easy, and taste wonderful!
One Hour Rolls
1 1/2 C hot water
3 T yeast
Mix and let sit.
Together in a glass bowl mix:
1/2 C milk
1/3 C sugar
2 t salt
3 T butter
Microwave that for 1 to 1.5 minutes on high. Stir (not all of the butter will be melted).
Pour about 4 C of flour over yeast/water mixture in mixer. Then pour hot milk mixture over the flour (this prevents the hot milk mixture from overheating the yeast). Use dough hook for mixer and start mixing on low to medium speed. This kneads the dough as it mixes in the flour, saving you some time!
Add additional flour as needed until the dough is formed and not too sticky. Oil or spray the dough with non-stick spray and then turn over so entire roll of dough is "oiled." Then fill your sink with really warm water. Put bowl of dough in warm water and cover with a clean, dry washcloth. This warm water rising method helps the dough rise quickly! Let rise like this for 15 minutes.
Then form dough into rolls on a pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.
Cover rolls and let them rise 15 minutes.
