These are sweet dinner rolls which are a bit like croissants. You make the dough in the bread machine but bake them in the oven.
Wow, I can't believe I made such good rolls. I don't have a breadmaker, so here's what I did: I mixed the water and milk, nuked in in the microwave for 1 minute and 15 seconds, poured it into the bowl of my KitchenAid mixer, then stirred in the sugar until it dissolved, then stirred in the yeast. I use yeast from a jar instead of packets, and I used 2.5 teaspoons. After it got foamy (I only waited about 10 minutes...I'm impatient) I mixed in the salt, butter and egg, then I started mixing the flour a half cup at a time. I let it rise for about 45 minutes in the bowl, then punched it down, divided it into 16 balls (I didn't feel like making crescents) and let it rise for another hour, then baked for 10 minutes. They turned out like something from a bakery. I have never, ever baked bread this wonderful. I am so bummed that I am home alone right now and nobody can see what a wonderful thing I just did! I also want to add, pay attention to the temperature of your oven...My oven tends to be extremely hot, so I only set it for 350 to bake these...they turned out perfect. I know 400 degrees would have blackened them. ~K - 16 Aug 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
So yummy! I don't have a breadmaker, so I made these the traditional way (dissolve yeast and 1 tbsp sugar in warm water, let sit for about 10 min. Meanwhile, warm milk in saucepan until it just bubbles. Remove from heat, stir in sugar and butter until melted and cool to lukewarm. In a large bowl combine yeast mixture, milk mixture and egg. Stir in flour a little at a time and knead on lightly floured surface about 8 min.) Cover and let rise about 1 hr...punch down and then roll out. I baked at 375 for 12 min, but could have used a tad longer. Still very good. - 08 Mar 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
There are never any rolls left when I make these for a dinner. After the dough raises, I divide the dough into 27 pieces and form into balls. I place 9 balls in a greased 9" pie pan, this gives me 3 pans of rolls. I let them raise for 30 minutes, then bake in the oven until lightly brown. I freeze the rolls in aluminum foil. When I need dinner rolls, I thaw the rolls, leave them wrapped in the foil and warm in the oven at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes. Delicious! - 23 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
