Honey Yeast Rolls


Once again, another bread that I made that just isn't pretty. I really don't know what I'm doing wrong but I'll just chalk it up to experience.

    • 1 envelope rapid rise yeast
    • 1 cup warm water
    • 1 1/4 tsp. salt
    • 1/4 cup honey
    • 1 egg, lightly beaten
    • 3 tbs. vegetable oil
    • 4 cups bread flour 
    • Glaze:
    • 2 tbs. butter, melted
    • 2 tbs. honey

1. Using the paddle attachment on a stand mixer, combine the yeast and water. Add the salt, honey, egg and oil. Mix well.
2. Add 3 cups of the flour and mix until the dough becomes a sticky mass. Switch to the dough hook and with the mixer on low speed, add the remaining cup of flour.
3. Continue kneading the dough at a low speed for about 8 minutes. I need to scrape the dough off the hook about half way through. The dough will be smooth and elastic.
4. Spray a bowl with cooking spray. Transfer the dough to the bowl, turn it once to coat and cover with plastic wrap. Let the dough rise in a warm spot for 2 hours. The dough will have doubled in size.
5. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead for 30 seconds. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rest for 10 minutes.
6. Punch the dough down and divide into 10-12 equal sized pieces. Shape each piece into a smooth ball and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet evenly spaced. (Annie used a round baking dish. I think it made them look a lot prettier, but I don't have one.) 
7. Cover the dough and let rise for 30 minutes.
8. Preheat the oven to 400.
9. Mix together the melted butter and honey. Brush the tops of the rolls.
10. Bake for 20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. Serve warm.

I just had to try one of these before I served them to everyone. They are SOOOOO good!
