Butter Rich Rolls

Butter Rich Rolls –

Made With A Bread Machine

1 cup Milk                                                  1-1/2 Tblsp. Crisco shortening

1/4 cup Sugar                                            3/4 tsp salt

2 large eggs – beaten                                4 cups flour

3 Tblsp. butter                                           1 pkg or 2 – 1/4 tsp bread machine yeast

   Pour the milk into the baking pan, add sugar, eggs,* butter, shortening, and salt.  On top of those, add the **flour and lastly, add the yeast.

    Plug the machine in and insert baking pan securely into the baking unit.

   Select the dough cycle and push START.

   The Zojirushi Bread Machine has a dough cycle of 2 hours.  It’s easy to figure when I should start the bread maker.  When the dough is ready, I remove the pan and turn the dough out onto a board.  I usually make 12 regular sized buns and 12 mini buns.  The kids love those.

   I cut the dough into 3 equal pieces and then cut each of those into 12 equal pieces and fill the regular muffin tins with 2 pieces in each cup and the mini tins with 1 piece in each cup.

   Cover and let rise until double.

   Bake in preheated  375º oven for  8 – 12 minutes or until golden brown.

   Obviously, the mini’s take less time than the regular size.  Adjust the time for baking each of these according to your oven.  I always check my baked goods early so they are not overdone.

* I have found that the machine works better if I cut the butter, if it is cold, into about 6 pieces.  It seems to mix better and more easily.

** I also found that if  I add 3 cups of flour and the yeast, allow the machine to work a little for a few minutes to be sure it is mixing well, and then add the last cup of flour, not having a batch of unmixed ingredients, is assured.  Yes, I found that out through experience.
