A while back, I did a review of Gooseberry Patch's Stitching for the Kitchen. I just love this bread basket I made. It's so stinkin' cute!
I had fully intended to share the recipe for these rolls that go with the basket (why, yes, the book does include a recipe for every sewing project!), but somehow I never got around to it. These rolls are so easy, though, I figure it's about time. My favorite thing about them...they fit perfectly in my new bread basket!
(In case it hadn't already occurred to you, Stitching for the Kitchen would make a great gift this holiday season!)
First, you dissolve yeast in warm water.
Meanwhile, combine milk sugar, salt, and butter in a saucepan and heat. After it's very warm, remove it from the heat and add the yeast mixture and flour.
Stir everything together until combined (no kneading required!). Cover and let rise for 15 minutes. That's right...you only have to wait 15 minutes!
Roll the dough out onto a floured surface and cut with a biscuit cutter.
Dot each round of dough with melted butter, and then fold and pinch the edges together.
Let these rise for 15 more minutes, and then bake!
These are the perfect roll for your upcoming holiday dinners - easy to make, and quick from start to finish. Don't forget the jam!
