Parker House Dinner Rolls
My grandmother used to buy Parker House rolls for Thanksgiving but there is nothing like pulling them from the oven, piping hot and made with love.
3/4 cup milk
4 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
2 eggs, smallish or 1 extra large
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups flour, all purpose or white spelt
I am including a few photos but to print this (or any of my recipes) just click the "print friendly" button at the bottom and print without the pics.
Begin by warming the milk in a small saucepan, stir in the butter and sugar, set aside to cool.
Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large mixing bowl, allow to rest for 10 minutes while the yeast becomes frothy.
Add the milk mixture, eggs, and salt to the yeast.
After the first rise, knead the dough a few more times to knock it back down to size. Place on work space and cut into 12 - 18 pieces.
Preheat the oven to 350F. Melt 3 tablespoons butter and brush the tops of rolls, set the remaining butter aside.
Bake for 20 minutes or until a rich golden brown.
Brush with the remaining butter.
