Oh - fresh, homemade dinner rolls! If you've ever been to an Amish Restaurant you'll know that one of the best parts of the meal is the fresh rolls they serve.
What makes them even better is the peanut butter spread or homemade apple butter that can be spread liberally on them.
So, here's a great recipe that allows you to enjoy the same wonderful taste and aroma of fresh rolls at home.
If you prefer wheat rolls, feel free to substitute as much whole wheat flour as you want.
They are absolutely the best when piping hot and fresh out of the oven - enjoy!
2 c. hot water
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. margarine (or butter)
1 Tbsp. salt
2 Tbsp. yeast
1/4 c. warm water
1 tsp. sugar
2 eggs, beaten
7 c. flour
Combine 2 c. water, sugar, margarine (or butter) and salt. Cool to lukewarm. Combine yeast, 1/4 c water, and sugar. Let rise. Add yeast and eggs to first mixture. Add 4 c. flour. Beat well. Add 3 c. more flour. Let rise until double in size. Punch down. Let rise again and shape into rolls. Let rise and bake at 350° until golden brown.
