Amazing 1 Hour Rolls

If you are like me then you are crazy busy and sometimes want some carbs without the three hours of work that goes into making rolls.  When I first found this recipe I was skeptical to say the least, I have tried "1 hour rolls" before and they were ok but not nearly as good as these.  In fact I would say that our family liked these rolls better than the ones that need hours and hours of my time. 

I made mine in a muffin pan and they came out with a nice rounded top, the outside was crisp and the inside was flaky.  Everything you want in a roll!  This is for sure our new go to for homemade rolls (we don't do store bought).  I hope that you enjoy these as much as our family did!

3/4 C milk
4 T butter
3/4 C hot water
4 T sugar
1 t salt
4 – 4 1/2 C flour
1 heaping T yeast (I use active dry)
Pour your milk into a microwave safe container.
Add your butter to the milk and put it in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. (I did mine on the stove)
Preheat your oven to 170 degrees.
While the milk is getting nice and toasty, turn on the tap to get your hot water. (Temperature is important to making these rolls rise quickly. If you add cold water, your rolls are going to rise at a snails pace.  You want it to be almost too hot to put your hand in.)
Put your milk/butter and hot water in the bottom of your Kitchen Aid Mixer.
Add the sugar and salt.
Then add 2 C of the flour…let it mix for 1 minute.
Add the yeast.
Turn the mixer on and add the rest of the flour 1 C at a time.
You have enough flour when the dough scrapes the side of the bowl clean.
Mix on medium speed for 5 minutes. 
Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 5 minutes. You need the plastic wrap to trap the heat.
Take a bit of butter and coat the inside of a 9×13 pan. (I used spray)
Spray your counter, or a cutting board with cooking spray.
Lay your dough on top of it.
Take a sharp knife, spray it with cooking spray and cut your dough into 12 pieces. Make them as equal as you can….perfection is not necessary.
Gently round them into balls, and put them in your buttered 9×13 pan. (I put them in a muffin tin)
Put the pan into your warm 170 degree oven.
Let them rise for about 20 minutes or until they have risen an 1 inch above the rim of the pan.
Leave your pan in the oven and turn the heat up to 350 degrees.
Bake for 15 minutes. (The 15 minutes includes the time it takes the oven to increase in temperature.) Bake until golden brown.
Brush with a little softened butter.  (I used honey butter
