I made these honey rolls (from here) on friday and loved them! The hint of honey gave the rolls a wonderful flavor. Overall they were really good! Enjoy.
Yields 12 rolls (I doubled this.)
2 tsp. active dry yeast
1 c. barely warm water
1/4 c. honey + 1 tbsp
1 tsp. salt
3 c. all-purpose flour, plus extra if necessary
1 tbsp. butter, melted
In a large mixing bowl, sprinkle the yeast over the warm water and let sit for 5 minutes.
Add the honey, salt and egg. Stir until blended. Add 3 c. of flour and mix until the dough comes together. It will be sticky. On a lightly floured surface knead the dough until soft and elastic (about 8 minutes), adding more flour to keep the dough from sticking if necessary. Do not add too much flour! The dough will become more workable the longer you knead. Or, if you have a standing mixer, knead the dough with the dough attachment for 5-7 minutes, or until elastic.
Transfer the kneaded dough to a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and a clean kitchen towel. Let the dough rise in a warm area until it doubles in size, about 2 hours.
Before first rise.
Punch dough down, divide into 12 equal portions, and shape each portion into a round ball. (I have to say that is was pretty fun to punch down the dough!)
Punching the dough down.
Place in a pan (or on baking sheets) coated lightly with cooking spray. Cover with a kitchen towel and let it rise for another 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a small bowl, combine the melted butter and 1 tbsp honey. Brush over the rolls. Bake for 10-13 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm or at room temperature.
