Dinner Rolls

Nothing beats the taste of buttery, homemade dinner rolls. If you like to serve bread with your meals, keep a batch of these rolls in the freezer so you can pop them in the oven at a moment's notice for a side dish of freshly baked bread.

1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup warm milk
1 egg
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon salt
3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 (1/4-ounce) package dry active yeast
1/4 cup butter, softened

Preheat the oven to 400°F. 
Combine the water, milk, egg and 1/3 cup butter in a small bowl. Set aside. 
Stir together the flour, sugar, salt and yeast in a large bowl and make a depression in the center. Pour in the wet ingredients and stir until a sticky dough forms. 

4. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead by hand until soft. Divide the dough in half and roll each half into a 12-inch circle. 
Spread half of the remaining ¼ cup butter on each round and cut each round into 8 wedges. Roll the wedges up and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet. 
Cover with a warm towel and let rise for 1 hour. 
Bake at 400°F for 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown. 

To Freeze: 
Prepare the dinner rolls according to the recipe then place the unbaked rolls on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 1 hour or until the dough is frozen. Store the frozen rolls in an airtight container. When ready to cook, arrange the rolls on an ungreased cookie sheet and cook according to the directions.
