Weekend Fare: Quick Rolls

I simply must share how I adapted my pizza dough recipe into light and fluffy dinner rolls. We had company and I hadn't really done a great job at planning a menu so I threw these together hoping they would work - they don't have to rise which is why I love them the most! Anyway, it worked and we loved them.

2 Tb. yeast
2 c. warm milk or water (I used half of each)
2 Tb. sugar
2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. butter, melted
5 c. flour

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix yeast, milk, and sugar together. Add salt, butter, and 2 c. flour. Combine and allow to sit for 2 minutes. Add remainder of flour. Knead (I allow my mixer to do this part) for 10 minutes by hand or 4-5 minutes in a mixer or until elastic. Allow dough to rest for 5 minutes. Shape into rolls. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown.
