¼cupWarm Water (110-115 degrees)
2 ¼teaspoonsYeast (active dry or instant)
⅓cupMilk (preferably warmed)
1teaspoonDried Parsley or Italian Seasoning
In a bowl, dissolve 1 teaspoon of sugar into ¼ cup of warm water at 110°F-115°F. Using a thermometer is the most accurate way to determine the correct liquid temperature.If you don’t have a thermometer, the water should be warm but NOT hot to the touch. Stir in 2 ¼ teaspoons of dry yeast. Yeast should be at room temperature before using.
Within several minutes, the yeast will have absorbed enough liquid to activate and start to rise. After ten minutes, the yeast mixture should be bubbling and foamy and should have started to rise. If this is true, your yeast is very active. If your yeast is doing absolutely nothing, discard the yeast and buy fresh yeast.
In a stand mixer or large bowl, cream butter and sugar for 1 minute. Add eggs and milk and mix for 2 more minutes. Add in proofed yeast mixture.
Pour in flour and salt. Mix for 5-7 minutes. Watch for the dough to start to come off the sides of the bowl. Add 1-3 Tablespoons of flour, if needed.
Cover bowl and set aside to rise in a warm place until double in size, about 1-2 hours. If you want to expedite the rising process, heat the oven to 200 degrees, turn off the oven, and place the oven-safe bowl to rise until double in size.
Once the dough is doubled, roll into small balls, about 7-9 depending on size preference. Place on greased or buttered baking pan or cast-iron skillet, close together to ensure the rolls rise upward and not spread.
In a small bowl, stir together butter, garlic, and seasonings. Lightly spread ¼ of butter mixture over the rolls.
Cover and set aside to rise for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 14 - 18 minutes or until golden brown. Brush rolls with remaining garlic butter. Let the rolls soak up the garlic butter and keep repeating until all of the garlic butter is on the rolls. Serve warm or store in an air-tight container.
