Dinner Roll Dough

Ingredients -

1/2 C Warm water (110 degrees)
1/2 C Warm Milk
1 Egg
1/3 C Soft Butter
1/3 C White Sugar
1 teas salt
3 3/4 AP Flour
1 (.25 oz) Pkg Active dry Yeast
1/4 C Soft Butter

Directions -

1 - Place water, milk, egg, 1/3 c butter, sugar, salt, flour and yeast in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer.

Select Dough/Knead and First Rise Cycle, press start.

2 - When cycle finishes,

turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface.

Divide in half. Roll each half into a 12 inch circle, spread the 1/4 cup of soft butter over entire round. Cut each buttered circle into wedges....

Starting at wide end; roll gently, but tightly. Place point down on an ungreased pan.

Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rise another hour in a warm place. Meanwhile preheat oven to 400 degrees.

3 - Bake in preheated oven for about 12 mins, until golden.


For the Cina-buns you do all the above - except you roll the dough into a rectangle..... and the filling I made up was a cup of soft butter, a big handful of brown sugar, 2 or 3 teas of Cinnamon, a teas of nutmeg, a shake or two of clove and allspice - mix together and spread over the rectangle. Then sprinkle over buttered dough a big handful of pecans and a half handful of raisins (or not, whatever you want). Roll this into a log shape.

Any of the filling that came out I just pushed back in. Cut this into 8 or so slices and put into an ungreased pan. Cover and let rise for an hour and then bake in a preheated oven until golden brown.

Let coll in pan. Turn out onto a plate and ice with a cream cheese frosting. These will keep and reheat for a couple of days.
