Honey Yeast Rolls

As I was looking through my bookmarked recipes for a bread to make to go with our chicken and potato dinner, I remembered drooling over these Honey Yeast Rolls from Amber's Delectable Delights. It was just the recipe that I was looking for so I got to work!

This was a really easy dough to work with and the rolls were VERY tasty! They were light and fluffy with a hint of honey. The kids loved these as well. This recipe will definitely be a keeper!

2 1/4 tsp instant yeast
1 cup warm water (110 degrees)
1/4 cup honey
3 tbsp canola oil
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
4 cups bread flour
cooking spray
1 tbsp butter, melted
1 tbsp honey
In a mixer bowl with the paddle attachment, combine yeast with warm water and let set for 10 minutes until foamy. Add the honey,oil, salt and egg and mix well.

Add 3 cups of the flour and mix until the dough comes together in a sticky mass. With the mixer on low speed, add enough of the remaining flour to get a good dough- I used about 1/2 cup here. Change to the dough hook and knead on low speed until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.

Form the dough into a ball and transfer to a lightly oiled bowl, turning to coat.

Cover the bowl with a damp towel and let the dough rise in a warm spot until doubled in bulk (about 2 hours).

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 30 seconds. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.

Punch the dough down and divide into 12 equal portions. Shape each into a all and place in lightly oiled dish (I used a 9 x 13 dish). Cover and let rise in a warm spot for at least 20 minutes.

Mix together melted butter and honey and brush lightly over the tops of the dough. Bake at 400 degrees for 13-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm or at room temperature.
