Cast Iron Skillet Parker House Rolls

1/2 cup warm water

1 cup warm milk

1/2 cup honey

1 packet of yeast

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 ½ tsp. salt

5 cups flour

 

Combine the warm water, milk, honey, and yeast and set aside for about 10 minutes until foamy.

 

In a stand mixer with a dough hook, combine the yeast mixture, butter, salt and 5 cups of flour.  Mix until the dough leaves the sides of the bowl and clings to the dough hook, about 5 minutes.

 

Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead a few times.  Pinch off balls of dough and form into rolls.  (pinching the seams on the underside to make the top smooth.)

 

Place the formed rolls into a well-buttered cast iron skillet, leaving space between each one.  Let the rolls rise in a warm place for 2 hours, until doubled in size. 

 

Bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees. 

 

Brush generously with butter and serve.
