Parker House Rolls
3 cups flour
1 TBLS cold butter
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt (omit if you used salted butter)
1 tsp. dry active yeast
1 cup + 2 TBLS warm milk
Crumble cold butter into flour with fingers until course mixture appears.
Stir in sugar, salt, and yeast.
Add milk and stir until dough forms.
Knead dough on lightly floured surface for 3-4 minutes.
Place in greased bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap and let rise 2-3 hours or until doubled.
Lightly knead and cover with towel. Let rest 10-15 min to relax gluten. Roll out and cut with circle cutter. Place dab of butter/marg. in center and fold in half. Place on greased cookie sheet.
Cover with towel and let rise for 45 min. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 min.
