|Buttery Holiday Dinner Rolls|
1/2 cup + 1 tbsp + 1 tsp water (140 ml)
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp salt
3-1/2 cups bread flour
3 tbsp sugar
2 tsp bead machine yeast
1/4 cup melted butter x 2 (one for brushing prior to rising, and another for right after baking)
Add water, 3 eggs, butter to bread machine at room temperature. Add salt, bread flour, 3 tbsp sugar and yeast. Select dough cycle (which takes about 1-1/2 hours).
Melt 1/4 cup butter. Generously grease the muffin pan cups with shortening.
Take out the dough and place onto a greased countertop and shape into a log about 2 inches thick across (to have an idea of this, take a look at my video on how I make my pandesal). Cut every 1/2 inch and place 3 pieces into a muffin cup with cut sides facing each other. Place at the center a smaller piece (half of the usual cut) on top of these three pieces. Brush with melted butter. Repeat until all cups are filled. (This mixture will yield about 12-14 pieces).
Cover with greased cling wrap. Let rise in warm area for about 30 minutes or until almost doubled.X Bake at 375°F for 12-14 minutes or until nicely browned. Take out and immediately tap out of the muffin pans onto a cooling wire rack. Turn them upright. Place on top of another pan and brush some more with melted butter (for garlicky flavor, mix in with garlic salt to taste).
