Dinner Rolls

Lately, I've been using this recipe whenever we want homemade dinner rolls.  They turn out great and are delicious!

How does she

1 1/2 cups of milk
3/4 cup Sugar
1/2 c. butter
1 egg
1 Tablespoon salt
2 Tablespoons yeast
1 cup cold water
1 cup warm water
about 9-10 cups of all purpose flour
1/2 c. melted butter
Scald 1 1/2 cups of milk, 3/4 cup sugar and 1/2 cup of butter cut into about 5 pieces, in a saucepan on stove top.  When butter is mostly melted and milk is about to boil, remove from from heat and pour into a large bowl.  Add 1 c. cold water to cool the milk a little, then add yeast and let proof for a few minutes.  Once yeast has puffed up a little, use a whisk to mix into milk and egg, salt and add 1 cup warm water.  Whisk and then add 8 cups of flour.  Mix in with a spoon and let sit at least 1 hour or until doubled in size. 
Once doubled, divide dough into 4 balls, it will be sticky.  Melt 1/2 cup of butter and set aside.  Working with one of the balls, knead in a little more flour into it until it is workable and no longer sticky.  
Use a rolling pin to roll into a flat cirle.  Spread some of the butter onto the dough.  Then use a pizza cutter or a knife to cut into 4 triangle.  Cut each of those 4 sections into 3.  This will give you 12 triangles.  Butter a large baking sheet and do 3 rows of 8 for a total of 24 rolls on each pan.  Repeat with all 3 of the balls to get 2 full pans of dinner rolls.  Turn on oven to 350 for about 30 seconds then turn off.  Place rolls in oven to raise for 30 minutes or until doubled.  Remove from oven and then bake rolls on 350 for 10-15 min.   Make sure to share with your neighbors!
