Lion House Dinner Rolls

2 c. warm water
2/3 c. nonfat dry milk (instant or non-instant)
2 Tb yeast
¼ c. sugar
2 tsp salt
1/3 c. butter or shortening
1 egg
5 to 5 ½ c. all purpose or bread flour

Combine water and milk powder; stir until milk dissolves.  Add yeast, then sugar, salt, butter, egg and 2 cups flour.  Mix on low speed until ingredients are wet, then on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add 2 cups flour; mix on low speed until ingredients are wet, then on medium speed for 2 minutes.  (Dough will be getting stiff and remaining flour may need to be mixed in by hand.)  Add about ½ c. flour and mix again, by hand or mixer.  Dough should be soft, not overly sticky, and not stiff.  (A soft dough will produce a lighter roll. Add only enough flour to make a manageable dough.)  Place dough in a greased bowl; turn to coat.  Cover and let rise until double in size.  Turn dough over on floured surface so that it is floured on both sides.  Gently flatten to 1 inch thick, then roll into a 18x8 inch rectangle, ¼ inch thick.  Cut dough in half the long way, to make two 4 inch strips.  Cut dough every two inches to make 18 rectangles of dough, about 2 inches x 4 inches each. (Sometimes when I roll out the dough it turns out larger than 18x8, in which case I just add another column when cutting the rolls; the point is, you should cut the dough into rectangles roughly 2x4 inches.) Starting with the short (2 inch) end, roll the dough up and place on greased baking pans with the short end down.  Let rise until doubled in size, about 1 to 1 ½ hours. Bake at 375° for 15 to 18 minutes or until browned.  Brush with melted butter while hot.  Makes 1 to 1 ½ dozen rolls.  (Dough may be used for breadsticks as well – 375° for ~10 minutes.)

The Sisters Cafe was kind enough to share the LION HOUSE ROLL RECIPE on their blog.

**These rolls are sooo good.  This is the first time I have made LION HOUSE ROLLS.  The rolls turned out so well.  Infact they were still moist after 4 days.  The key is to not add too much flour.  I will definately be making these again SOON!
