I am always trying different roll recipes. For some reason I feel a need to find a recipe that is yummy and that works great. I think I may have found it!
2 cups warm water
2/3 cup dry milk
2 TB yeast
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. salt
1/3 cup butter, shortening, or margarine
5-5 1/2 cups flour
Mix water and milk until combined. Add yeast, salt, sugar, butter, egg, and 2 cups flour. Mix on low speed until ingredients are wet. Mix on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add 2 cups flour and mix the same as before. Keep adding flour until the dough is manageable. (I used almost all of it).
Rub with oil and flip in bowl, let rise for 45 minutes. Roll out in rectangle. Brush with melted butter. Cut in half both ways. Then cut in strips and roll them up starting with short end. Let rise for 1- 1 1/2 hours, until double. (if you live here, maybe 45 minutes) Bake 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Brush with butter.
Good thing I have new running shoes!
