This is my aunt's recipe for easy roll dough. This dough works great for any recipe that calls for Rhodes dough. I find it easier to pop this in the bread maker than to defrost Rhodes dough, plus it frees up my freezer for more important things like Snelgroves Burnt Almond Fudge Ice Cream! Oh, and she buys her instant yeast at the Bosch store and says it makes a big difference in how the rolls turn out.
Add the following ingredients to your bread maker in order:
3/4 cup milk - heat in microwave for l minute
Add 1/2 cup cold water and 1/3 cup oil to the warm milk then add to bread maker
1 egg - beaten
3 1/2 - 4 cups bread flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
3 tsp instant yeast.
Set breadmaker to "dough" setting and let it rise to double its size.
Form rolls into cupcake tin or form into breadsticks. Let rise until doubled in size (about 1 hour). Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 Minutes. Brush with melted butter as soon as they come out of the oven.
I used this for Hillary's Breadsticks recipe from May 2008 and it worked really well.
