Lion House Rolls

Best. Rolls. EVER. Enough said. Now make them for dinner... you won't be disappointed!

Lion House Rolls
Recipe from Mommy's Kitchen
VIDEO on how to shape rolls

2 - cups warm water
2/3 - cup nonfat dry milk
2 - tablespoons dry yeast
1/4 - cup sugar
2 - tsp salt
1/3 - cup butter
1 - egg
5 to 5 1/2 - cups all purpose flour

In your mixer combine water and dry milk. Stir until dissolved. Add yeast, sugar, salt, butter, egg and 2 cups flour. Mix on low speed until ingredients are wet, then for 2 minutes on medium speed. Add 2 more cups flour, and mix on low speed until ingredients are wet, and 2 minutes on medium speed. Add remaining flour (I only add one more cup, and leave out the last 1/2). Once combined, knead with hands, or turn on your kneading function on your bread mixer. Place dough in a oiled bowl. Turn over once so dough is covered with oil. Cover with plastic, and let rise in a warm place until double in size. Place dough on floured surface. Roll out dough, and brush with melted butter. Cut rolls into desired shape and size. (If you don't want to do it like in the video, you could just roll the rectangles.) Place on a greased or parchment paper lined baking pan. Let rise in warm place until rolls are doubled in size. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until browned. Brush with melted butter while hot.

How to freeze rolls: After shaping the rolls place them 2 inches apart on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Place the rolls in the freezer and freeze until firm. When the rolls are firm, transfer to a large zip lock freezer bag. Date and freeze for up to 4 weeks.

To use freezer rolls: Arrange frozen rolls 2 inches apart on baking sheets coated with nonstick cooking spray or covered with parchment paper. Cover rolls with plastic wrap coated with baking spray. Place in a warm place and let the rolls rise until doubled in size. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with additional butter while hot.
