Texas Roadhouse Rolls
Copycat Recipe

*Alma Vd Walt Ranney*
4 tsp. active dry yeast
1/2 c. warm water
2 c. milk, scalded and cooled to lukewarm
3 Tbl. of melted butter, slightly cooled
1/2 c. sugar
2 quarts all purpose flour (7-8 cups)
2 whole eggs
2 tsp. salt
Dissolve yeast in warm water with a teaspoon of sugar.
Add yeast, milk, sugar and enough flour to make a medium batter.
Beat thoroughly. Let stand until light and foamy.
Add melted butter, eggs and salt. Beat well.
Add enough flour to form a soft dough.
Sprinkle a small amount of flour onto counter and let dough rest.
Meanwhile, grease a large bowl. Knead dough until smooth and satiny and put in greased bowl; turn over to grease top. (I used the dough hook on my Kitchen-Aid to knead this for about 4-5 minutes).
Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in bulk.
Punch down.
Turn out onto a floured board.
Divide into portions for shaping; let rest 10 minutes.
Shape dough into desired forms.
Place on greased baking sheets. Let rise until doubled.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Baste immediately with butter. Yield: 5 to 6 dozen. Serve with Cinnamon Honey Butter.

*Notes: I shaped my rolls by rolling out the dough into a rectangle, about 1/2-inch thick, then I folded the rectangle in half, making it about 1-inch thick. I used my rolling pin and rolled over the dough, ever so gently, just to seal the two halves together. I then used a dough scraper and cut the rolls into squares and placed those on my greased baking sheet. I cut the recipe in half and I got exactly 12 big rolls and baked them for 16-17 minutes. In order to get the 5-6 dozen rolls like the recipe states, you would have to make really small rolls. .bestyummyrecipes*
