coolrise sweet rolls

Grandma Olson's Rolls
This recipe isn't that sweet and makes great dinner rolls.

1/3 c. warm water
1 Tbl yeast
1/4 c. sugar
½ c. warm milk
2 Tbl. softened butter
3/4 tsp salt
2 ½ c. flour

Add yeast to warm water in large bowl. Add sugar, milk, butter, egg and salt and mix. Add half of flour and mix well. Add the rest of the flour gradually until it forms a soft dough. If you have a dough hook, mix it in mixer, otherwise, turn out onto flour covered surface and knead 10 minutes. Cover and let rest 20 minutes. Shape into braided bread, rolls or cinnamon rolls. Let rise and cook at 375 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes. Or you can cover with plastic wrap and let them rise in the fridge for up to 48 hours, take out 10–20 minutes before you put them in the oven, and then cook them.

Cinnamon rolls: Roll out dough into rectangle. Spread with butter, sprinkle on cinnamon and sugar, roll up into log and cut with a knife or string. Place on greased pan and cook. Top with a little bit of vanilla, water and powdered sugar mixed together.

Orange rolls: Wash and dry an orange. Scrape off the zest (skin of the orange). Mix with sugar. Spread butter on the rectangle of dough. Sprinkle with the orange/sugar mixture. Roll up, slice, bake and top with a little bit of orange juice and powdered sugar mixed together.
