Ingredients For sydney’s rolled rolls

  • 2/3 c
    powdered milk
  • 2 Tbsp
    active dry yeast
  • 1/4 c

How To Make sydney’s rolled rolls

  • Dough turned out onto table ready to shape.
    Combine water and dry milk powder in a large bowl of an electric mixer, stirring until milk dissolves. Add yeast and then sugar, salt, ⅓ cup butter, egg, and 2 cups flour. Mix on low speed until ingredients are wet. Increase mixer speed to medium and mix for 2 minutes. Add 2 cups flour; mix on low speed until ingredients are wet and then for 2 minutes at medium speed. (Dough will be getting stiff, and remaining flour may need to be mixed in by hand.)
  • Second rise complete! Ready to bake!
    Add remaining flour, ½ cup at a time, until dough is soft, not overly sticky, and not stiff. (It is not necessary to use the entire amount of flour.)
  • Shaped dough ready to form into rolls.
    Scrape dough off sides of bowl and pour oil all around sides of bowl. Turn dough over in bowl so it is covered with oil. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1½ hours.
  • Finished dough ready to shape into rolls.
    Lightly sprinkle cutting board or counter with flour and place dough on floured surface. Roll out to 1/4 - 3/4 inch thick. Spread evenly with 1/2 cup butter. Use knife or pizza cutter to cut into rectangles about the size of a one dollar bill. Roll snugly, lengthwise. Place on greased or parchment-lined baking pans. Cover lightly with plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm place until rolls are doubled in size, about 1 to 1 ½ hours.
  • Rolls are shaped and in pan, ready for their second rise!
    Bake 15 to 20 minutes at 375 degrees F., or until golden brown. Soften or melt ½ cup butter and brush rolls with butter while hot.
