Do you panic when you realize that you need lunch, and by lunch I mean Texas Roadhouse rolls, but the restaurant doesn’t open until 4:00 p.m.?! Me too!! Now you can make them. Just serve that soft whipped butter in a bowl and dip the rolls like tortilla chips in guac. Everything is going to be okay…..
2¼ t active dry yeast
¼ c warm water
¼ c sugar + 1 t sugar
1 c milk, warmed
3 T melted butter, slightly cooled
4 c flour
1 t salt
additional melted butter for brushing on hot rolls
In large mixer bowl combine yeast, warm water, and 1 teaspoon sugar and let sit 10 minutes until bubbly. Using paddle attachment mix in remaining sugar, milk, and melted butter. Add 1 cup flour and mix again. Add egg and salt and mix until blended. Attach a dough hook and with mixer on medium speed, slowly add remaining flour until dough is smooth and doesn’t stick to the sides of the mixer bowl. Turn dough onto floured counter, cover with cloth, and let sit 10 minutes. Place in oiled bowl, cover with towel, and let double in size, about 1 hour.
Turn dough onto oiled or floured counter and roll until ½ inch thick. Using pizza cutter, cut into 2 x 3-inch rectangles and place on parchment lined baking sheets a few inches apart. Cover with cloth and let rise until double in size, about 1 hour. Bake at 350ºF for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and brush with additional melted butter. Serve warm with whipped butter.
