Honey Yeast Rolls

When searching for yeast roll recipes my dear friend Karla over at The Culinary Enthusiast gave me this recipe.  She said it wouldn't disappoint.  It didn't!  I've had several people request this recipe after tasting this yummy roll!  Our eldest daughter, Rebekah, even won a Blue ribbon at 4-H judging a few weeks ago.  Enjoy!

Honey Yeast Rolls

2 1/4 tsp. instant yeast 
1 c. warm water (105-115 degrees)
1/4 c. honey 
3 T. canola oil
1 1/4 tsp. Salt 
1 egg, slightly beaten
4 c. bread flour

2 T. melted butter 
2 T. honey

In stand mixer bowl use a paddle attachment to combine yeast and warm water. Add honey, oil, salt, and egg and mix well. Add 3 c. of the flour and mix until the dough comes together in a sticky mass. Switch to the dough hook and, with mixer on low speed, incorporate the remaining 1 c. of flour. Continue kneading on low speed for about 8 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic.

Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl, turn once to coat, and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm, draft-free spot until doubled in size (1 1/2 - 2 hours).

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for 30 seconds. Cover with a towel and let rest for 10 minutes. Punch the dough down and divide into 10-12 equal size pieces. Shape each piece into a smooth ball and place into a round, lightly greased 9x13 baking dish, spacing evenly. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free spot for 20-30 minutes (or until doubled).

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix together the melted butter and honey, and brush the tops of the rolls with the mixture. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown and rolls are baked through.

Made these. Loved the recipe. I use whole wheat flour with dough enhancer. Some recipes will still hold up and make a soft dough but some won't. This did! Thanks for the recipe.
