Recipe: Snowflake Rolls

Please join my list of Linky and Google friends when you visit my blog!
Thanks!
These snowflake rolls from "Just a Pinch" are excellent and they work up relatively quickly.   I did bake for about 10 minutes instead of 15 minutes and I
used 9" round pans.  They come out as light as a feather!     

My favorite Snowflake Rolls by "Just A Pinch"

These are my favorite rolls. A snow flake roll is a light and airy roll that has a slight chew to it.  Quick to make for a yeast roll.

Cook time: 15 Min  Prep time: 10 Min  Serves: 24
Ingredients
3 1/2 c flour
3 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 pkg packets instant yeast
1 c milk
1/2 c water
1 stick unsalted butter
Directions

1.
 Heat water milk,and butter in a saucepan until warm (not hot). keep on warm. Get a large bowl and combine 1 1/2 cups of flour, salt, yeast, and sugar. Mix them all together really well.
2. add the warm butter mixture to the flour mixture.Get your hand held mixer and mix on medium for a couple of minutes, then gradually add more of the remaining 2 cups of flour a little at a time. Keep adding the flour until you get a soft dough to handle by adding a little flour at a time and mixing well.
3. Once your dough is easy to handle. Put on a floured surface, and knead for 5-7 minutes. Put in a greased bowl.turn to get the dough greased all the way around.Cover and let rise in a warm place for 15 minutes.
4. Take dough and put on floured board. Cut the dough in to equal size pieces. Shape into rolls by rolling them with hand on floured surface..
5. Place the rolls in( 2 )- 9 inch square pans. Let rise for another 20 minutes, or until puffed up. Dust the tops of rolls with flour. Then bake at 425 degree's for 15 minutes or until light brown.
