It’s Monday! And lest you think I’ve forgotten, MWM will, in fact, continue….once Mom sends the recipes to me that I need to post.
that was a direct hint, Mom….
Hey, I know she’s been busy – her mind is always going in no less than 10 different directions at once, so I haven’t pressed her too much. But she has made some amazing things lately and I really want to get them down before too much time elapses.
another direct hint……
However, in the interim, here is the recipe for these rolls that I found on Pinterest (I saw that raised eyebrow you just gave me) – hey, in my defense, Pinterest in a fantastic source of inspiration for me. I mean, I saw a terrific outfit on there last night, pinned it, and put it together this morning to wear to work.
And I look great 😉
Don’t worry, I won’t break my arm patting myself on the back…..
Texas Roadhouse Rolls – adapted from cooking actress
4 tsp. active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm (not hot) water
2 cups whole milk
3 tbs. butter, melted and cooled
1/2 cup granulated sugar
7 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
Scald the whole milk-place in a heavy bottomed saucepan over medium heat-just the point where it boils. Immediately remove from heat and let cool to comfortably warm (I used the microwave, and heated the milk in a pyrex measuring cup). In the work bowl of a stand mixer, dissolve yeast and 1 tsp. sugar in the warm water. Add in cooled milk, the rest of the sugar, and 2 cups of flour. On medium speed, beat thoroughly. Let stand for a few minutes. Beat in butter, eggs, and salt. Add in 5 cups of flour to form a soft and very sticky dough. Using a dough hook, knead dough until smooth and satin-y.
Place dough in a greased bowl and turn to coat. Cover lightly and rest in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
Remove risen dough and place on floured surface. Form the dough into rolls (I think I made about 18) and place on parchment lined cookie sheets. Cover lightly and let rise until they have doubled (about another hour).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Bake rolls 15-18 minutes, until lightly golden on top. Remove from the oven and brush the tops with melted butter.
