Happy Day!

On Tuesday, I had judging for both of my 4H projects. I won first place in both my cake decorating and my yeast bread projects! Now I get to go to our state fair and compete there at the end of July. I will have to make more bread and decorate another cake. Below is the recipe that I used for yeast bread judging(also pictured at the side), they are so very yummy, almost like the restaurant rolls. Today I feel like baking, but what yet, I don’t know. But after I do, I post it up here.


Soft and Fluffy Dinner Rolls

Yields 18 Dinner Rolls

4-4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 packets quick-rise yeast

3 tablespoons sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

3/4 cup milk

1/2 cup water

1/4 cup butter plus 1 tablespoon

1 egg

Mix 1 1/2 cups flour with the other dry ingredients. Heat the milk, water and 1/4 cup of butter to 120-130 degrees Fahrenheit. Pour onto the dry mix and stir until incorporated. Add egg and enough of the remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on a floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 4-6 minutes. Let rest, covered, for 10 minutes. Cut into 18 equal parts and shape each piece into roll shape. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Let rise, covered, for 20-40 minutes more. Heat oven to 375F and bake for 20-30 minutes. Melt the remaining butter and brush overtop the rolls. Cool on a wire rack.
