Here is another excellent recipe that came from my friend Katie at our recipe exchange. These rolls are heavenly! They taste a little sweeter than a regular dinner roll and the small pat of butter baked in the middle of each roll doesn’t hurt either! Yum. Make sure to seal each roll really good or it will pop open on you while baking.
Parker House Rolls
Submitted by Amy ~ The Sisters Cafe
3/4 c. warm water
3/4 c. scalded milk
1 T. active dry yeast
7 T. sugar
3/4 t. salt
1/4 c. oil
4-5 c. sifted all purpose flour
Put 3/4 c. warm water in a measuring cup. Add 1 T. sugar and yeast. Let the yeast sit for a moment until it begins to react. Mix yeast mixture, milk, salt, oil and remaining sugar in a mixing bowl. Add flour until consistency is right for kneading. (Dough should be slightly sticky.) Knead for a few minutes. Take dough out of the bowl, shape it into a ball and place it back in the bowl. Let rise for approximately 3 hrs. Roll dough out to 1/2-3/4 inches thick. Cut into 3″ circle. (I just used the top of a glass cup to do this. You could also use a round cookie cutter.) Place a small pat of butter in the middle of the circle. Fold circles in half to cover butter. Firmly seal closed. Place rolls on a greased baking sheet. Repeat process until all the dough has been shaped into rolls. Let rise for an additional 30 minutes. Bake at 425 degrees for 10-14 minutes or until golden.
