Mom's Dinner Rolls

Mmmm.... Nothing better than homemade warm rolls right out of the oven. These are great dinner rolls that my mom used to make for us all the time. It's definitely a tried and true dinner roll recipe. I like using these rolls to make mini sandwhiches with too. So yummy! I make these using my Bosch mixer, and it's a cinch.

Mom's Dinner Rolls

2 packages (2 tbsp) yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cups warm water
2 eggs
6 cups flour
1/2 cup powedered milk
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup melted butter

Empty 2 packages yeast and 1/4 cup sugar in bowl. Add 1/2 cup warm water and let sit until bubbly. (About 5 - 10 minutes)
Add 1/2 cup oil and 2 cups warm water. Beat eggs in a separate bowl and add in. Add powdered milk, salt, and flour and beat on high for 4 minutes. (If you are beating by hand, double the time)
Grease a large bowl and turn the dough in the bowl.
Raise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
Punch dough down. Take half of the dough out and roll out on clean surface to about 1/4 inch thickness. Cut in circles. (I use a small cup to cut out the dough)
Melt about 1/4 cup butter in microwave. Wipe butter over circle, and fold circle in half sealing the edges. Line rolls up on baking sheet and let rise for 35 minutes.
Bake at 375 degrees and cook 15 minutes or until brown on top.
