Mouthwatering Yeast Rolls

Makes 12 servings

1 teaspoon sugar
1 (1/4 ounce) package dry active yeast
1/4 cup tepid water (105-110 degrees)
1 cup warm milk
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten (at room temp)
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups all-purpose flour

1.  Combine sugar and yeast in tepid water.

2.  Let stand 5-10 minutes until yeast begins to foam.

3.  Thoroughly mix milk, butter, sugar, egg and salt in large bowl.

4.  Stir in the yeast mixture and 3 1/2 cups of flour, adding a bit more if necessary to make a soft, pliable dough.

5.  Turn dough out on floured board and let rest while you clean and butter bowl.

6.  Knead dough gently 4-5 minutes, adding flour if necessary, until dough is smooth and silky.

7.Return to bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise in warm place until doubled in size (1 1/2 hours appoximately).

8.  Butter a 12 cup muffin tin.

9.  Punch down dough.

10.  Pinch off pieces that are about 1 1/2 inches in diameter, (enough to fill one-half of muffin cup), and roll into smooth spheres.

11.  Place two such pieces in each prepared muffin cup- it will be a tight fit.

12.  Cover dough loosely with plastic wrap for 45 minutes.

13.  Bake rolls in preheated 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes, or until light brown.

14.  Serve as soon as they are cool enough to throw.
