The most necessary thing I need:
Winter has come to my home state of Indiana. It is soooooo cold outside. So what would I do on days like today where the wind chill is below zero? I bake and quilt. I made soft oat rolls. I'm going to share this recipe for you to do at home.
Here's what you are going to need:
1 1/4 cup boiling water
2/3 cup quick-cooking oats
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 c. butter or margarine, softened
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, slightly beaten
3 1/2 cups bread flour
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 Tablespoon Vital Wheat Gluten
1 Tablespoon butter, melted (for brushing the finished rolls)
I just love my KitchenAid Mixer
If it is too dry, add a little water. If it is sticking to the sides of the pan, add a little more flour. Cover the dough and let it rise for one hour. I put my dough in my oven after heating it in the warm setting. I cover it with plastic wrap and then a towel. Once the oven is warm, I turn it off and let the dough rise.
Divide dough into 15 equal pieces. Form into balls and place seam side down
into a greased 9 x 13” glass baking dish equal distance apart.
Again, I cover it up with plastic wrap and a towel and place
back in the oven that I have reheated in the warm setting.
Let it rise for another hour.
Preheat oven to 375°. Bake rolls in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and brush with melted butter. Serve warm.
