Bowles' Rolls

I made these dinner rolls yesterday and they were so incredibly good! They remind me of the sweet buttery rolls you get at Logan's or Texas Road house. They are soft, sweet and buttery! They are my new go to dinner roll recipe. Soooo yummy!

Bowles’ Rolls from Heather D White

1 1/2 C. milk (Scald = heat until hot...not boiling)

2 cubes butter
1 C. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt

Set aside to cool.

In a medium-sized bowl, dissolve:
4 T. Yeast
1/2 C. warm water
1/2 tsp. sugar

Set for 10 minutes. (yeast will expand. Make sure it is in a large enough bowl to do so.)

Beat 4 eggs and add to milk mixture.

Add 4 C. flour and mix well (by hand with a wooden spoon or in mixer).

Add yeast, mix well.

Add 3 C. flour, mixing after each cup.

Let rest for 10 minutes, then stir.

Cover with a towel or saran wrap and let rise until doubled in bulk (approx. 1 hour).

Punch down and let rise 10 more minutes. Section dough into 2 pieces. Roll each piece out separately into a big circle and brush with melted butter. Cut into 16 triangles like a Pizza. Roll up each piece like a crescent roll. Place on a cookie sheet and let rise until doubled. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-13 minutes. Remove from oven and brush with melted butter.

Feel free to shape dough in whatever shapes desired (simple round, etc.). These rolls are to die for!! Makes approx. 2 1/2 dozen rolls. You can also use this recipe to make cinnamon rolls and they are SOOO DELISH!!!
