Dinner Rolls: Prepared in One Hour or One Day

Here are two recipes for dinner rolls that can be preared in one hour or one day (when you have time)

Homemade dinner rolls are always tasty and can fill a home with great aromas. We've discovered two delicious recipes - one can be made in a hurry and the other requires an overnight in the fridge. With either method, you can also freeze and reheat them for really fast weekday meals.

One Hour Rolls

2 packages dry yeast
¼ cup lukewarm water (about 110º F.)
1 ¼ cups milk
3 ½ - 4 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons butter
3 Tablespoons sugar

Dissolve and proof the yeast in water. (Let it set for about five minutes to foam. If it does not create a foam, start over.) Combine milk, sugar, salt, and butter in a saucepan and heat, but not allow to boil. Pour into large bowl and add flour, then yeast. Mix thoroughly and cover. Allow to rest for about 15 minutes. Turn out on floured board. Knead lightly. Roll or press out to about a ½-inch thickness. Use a biscuit cutter to create circles. Dip in melted butter, fold gently in half, and place in muffin tin. Let rest and rise another 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 450º F. and bake for approximately 10 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm or freeze.

Twenty-Four Hour Icebox Rolls

1 cup boiling water
1/3 cup sugar
1 ½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup vegetable oil or Crisco
1 package yeast
¼ cup warm water
½ teaspoon sugar
1 egg
4 cups flour, sifted

Melt sugar and salt in boiling water. Add Crisco or vegetable oil. Dissolve yeast and ½ teaspoon sugar in warm water and allow to proof for five minutes. Add yeast to the first mixture. Combine with egg and mix thoroughly. Add the flour - two cups first and then gradually blend in more to create a firm dough. Beat or knead well. Cover tightly and place in refrigerator for 24 hours. Place dough on floured board and roll out to ½ inch thickness. Use a biscuit cutter to form circles. Dip in melted, cool butter and fold gently in half. Place in muffin tin and let rise in a warm spot for about 4 hours. Preheat oven to 400º F. and bake for about 20 minutes.
