4-H Dinner Rolls

Here is a recipe for 4-H Dinner Rolls from the project cookbook. For a picture see #4 in the 4-H Food Show post. When using regular yeast rising times are about 1 hour and when using rapid rise or quick rise yeast, it will only take about half that time.

1/2 c. sugar
2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. butter, softened
1 c. evaporated milk
2 pkgs. active dry yeast
1/2 c. water, lukewarm
5 c. flour

Mix sugar, salt, butter, and milk in a mixing bowl. Stir yeast into water and then add to other ingredients. Add 2 c. of flour and mix well. Add eggs. Beat mixture. Add enough flour to make a dough that is soft but stiff enough to be handled.

Turn out on a lightly floured surface and knead until dough is smooth, elastic, and does not stick. Form into ball and place in greased bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled-about 1 hour.

Punch down and let stand for 10 minutes. Shape into rolls and let rise until doubled again-about 1 hour.

Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes for pan rolls or about 20 minutes for individual rolls.
