And finally one last thing for Kristen’s dinner, homemade rolls. Now I am a pretty decent cook and baker but I always seem to have trouble with recipes that call for yeast, I just haven’t quite got the hang of it yet but this recipe is the find of the week! I know I will be making this over and over again because it was so easy and so quick and so yummy! It comes from the “Six Sisters’ Stuff” new cookbook that I just got at Costco. The recipe is probably on their website too. It will change your life, just like it changed mine (now how often can you say that about a recipe?).
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water
1/3 cup oil
2 tablespoons (or 2 packets) active dry yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 cups flour
Preheat oven to 400. In the bowl of a mixer, combine warm water, oil, yeast and sugar (I used a fork to mix it together) and let rest for 5 – 10 minutes or until mixture is frothy and bubbly. Attach mixer’s dough hook and mix in salt, egg and 2 cups of flour until combined. Add remaining flour a little at a time (dough will be very sticky). Spray hands with cooking spray and shape dough into 12 balls (I got about 15). After rolls are shaped, place on lightly greased cookie sheet and let rest for 10 minutes. Bake 10 minutes or until tops are lightly golden.
