ABM Automatic Bread Machine Dinner Rolls
Can be made with bread machine, KitchenAid mixer, or food
processor with dough hook
1 c. water
2 T. butter or margarine, softened
3 1/4 c. bread flour
1/4 c. sugar
1 t. salt
1 T. active dry yeast
If using a bread machine, measure carefully, placing all ingredients in bread
machine in order recommended by manufacturer. Select Dough/Manual cycle. Do not
use delay cycle. When cycle is complete remove dough from pan with lightly
If using mixer or food processor, remove about a tablespoon
(doesn't really matter how much, just to feed the yeast) from the 1/4 cup
measured sugar and dissolve in the warm water. Sprinkle yeast over water and let
sit 5 minutes or so until dissolved and foamy.
Meanwhile, mix flour, salt, and remaining sugar in mixer
bowl. When yeast is foamy, add to flour along with egg and margarine. Mix in
KitchenAid with dough hook about 6 minutes. Scrape into a ball, spray with Pam,
cover and let rise until double. Punch down. Cover and let rest 10 minutes on
lightly floured surface. Grease large cookie sheet.
Divide dough into 15 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a
ball. Place 2 inches apart* on cookie sheet. Cover and let rise in warm place 30
to 40 minutes or until double. Dough is ready if indentation remains when
touched. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Brush tops with
melted butter during baking just when the rolls begin to color and again when
they're done. Adjust oven temperature if rolls begin to brown too fast. Serve
immediately, or place on wire rack covered with a towel. Cool until just a hint
of warmth remains, then seal in bread bag and freeze. To reheat, wrap in foil
and place in 300-325 oven until hot.
And rising times are approximate; you have to go by the looks
of the dough, not the clock.
