Fluffy Dinner Rolls

adapted from: Jamie Cooks It Up


3/4 c. milk

4 Tbl. butter

3/4 c. hot water (almost too hot to touch)

4 Tbl. sugar

1 tsp. salt

4 - 4 1/2 c. flour

1 heaping Tbl. yeast


Pour milk into a glass measuring cup.  Add the butter to the milk and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes.  Preheat oven to 170 degrees.  Add milk/butter mixture and hot water to bowl of stand mixer.  Add sugar and salt.  Then, add 2 cups of the flour and let mix for 1 minute.  Add the yeast.  Turn mixer on and add the rest of the flour, 1 cup at a time.  You have enough flour when dough scrapes the side of the bowl clean.  Using dough hook, mix on medium speed for 5 minutes.  Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 5 minutes.  Spray cutting board or counter with cooking spray.  Lay dough on top and cut into 12 even chunks.  Gently roll into balls and put in a greased 9x13 pan.  Put pan in warm 170 degree oven.  Let rise 20 minutes or until they have risen 1-inch above the pan.  Leave pan in oven and turn up temperature to 350 degrees.  Bake for 15 more minutes or until golden brown.  Brush with a little butter.  Yield: 12 rolls.
