As I mentioned yesterday, I
tried two new recipes for my Boxing Day dinner, one for bread and the other for
these Crusty French Rolls.The reason I
made these recipes was because I’d forgotten to buy both bread and rolls, and
reasoned that it would take me less time to make these two than it would to
shower, dress, and run out for them.As
it turned out, I was right.I also found
myself two excellent recipes that I am sure to make again and again.
Happy New Year, everybody!
Crusty French Rolls
1-1/2 cups warm water
1 tablespoon bread machine
1 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
4 cups all-purpose flour
Place ingredients into the
bread machine in the order suggested by the manufacturer.Select the “dough” setting and allow to run its course.When dough is finished, turn out onto a
lightly floured surface.Deflate the
dough and divide into 16 equal pieces, and form each into a ball. Place rolls
on lightly greased baking sheets, spacing at least 2 inches apart. Cover the
rolls with a damp cloth, and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40
minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°F.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes in
the preheated oven, or until golden brown.
