Parker House Rolls

American.Kitchen's picture
Parker house rolls are simple bread rolls. Yeast leavened and made with added butter, milk and eggs along with flour, the parker house rolls can be easily prepared at home.
Ingredients
  Active dry yeast/1 cake compressed 1 Tablespoon (1 Package)
  Warm water 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Milk 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Sugar 2 Tablespoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Butter 3 Tablespoon
  All purpose flour 7 Cup (112 tbs), sifted
  Egg 1 , well beaten
Directions

Dissolve yeast in warm water.
Combine milk, sugar, salt, and butter in a saucepan, scald, then cool to lukewarm.
Stir in yeast and 3 cups of the flour, beating very hard.
Cover with a tea towel and place in a warm spot.
Let rise until light and bubbly, then mix in egg and enough of the remaining flour to make a kneadable dough.
Knead well, cover again, and let stand in a warm place until double in size.
Roll dough about 1/3 inch thick on a lightly floured board (dough will spring back at first).
Cut with a 3 inch round cutter.
Brush each circle with a little melted butter, crease center with the back of a floured knife, and fold over, pinching the edges together.
Place rolls 1 inch apart on ungreased cooky sheets.
Let rise again until almost double in size, then bake in a preheated 450° oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
