Dinner Rolls from Scratch

Oh my gosh. I am so excited about this recipe. I had no idea how easy it is to make delicious homemade rolls! These remind me so much of the Texas Roadhouse rolls. They're just perfectly puffy and sweet! Y'all have GOT to try this - it takes less than an hour, and most of that is baking time!

Recipe adapted from here.

3/4 cup milk
6 tbsp butter, separated
3/4 cup hot water
4 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
4 1/2 - 5 cups flour
2 packets fast rise yeast

1. Pour milk into a glass measuring cup. Add in 4 tbsp butter (sliced into about 8 pieces), and microwave on high for 90 seconds.
2. Preheat oven to 170 degrees.
3. Pour the milk-butter mixture into the bowl of a large stand mixture. Mix in the hot water, sugar, and salt.
4. Add 2 cups of the flour and mix using a dough hook for 1 minute.
5. Add the yeast. With the mixer on medium speed, add in the rest of the flour 1/2 cup at a time. Stop adding flour when the dough stops sticking to the sides of the bowl.
6. Mix dough with a dough hook on medium speed for five minutes.
7. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let sit in a warm place for five minutes (I just sit it next to my 170 degree oven).
8. Sprinkle a flat surface with a little flour. Put the dough on the surface and divide it into twelve pieces. Shape each piece into a ball, and place them in a lightly-greased 9x13 pan.
9. Put the rolls into the 170 degree oven. Let rise in the oven for 20 minutes (they should rise to about 1 inch above the pan).
10. Leave the pan in the oven, and turn up the temperature to 350 degrees. Bake for 15-20 more minutes, or until the rolls are golden brown.
11. Brush the tops of the rolls with the remaining 2 tbsp butter. Tear apart and serve!
