Refrigerator Rolls

You want to know one of my favorite things about blogging?
Meeting new friends and sharing tips and tricks, new ideas and tried and true recipes!

Since a few ladies were getting together this week for dinner, I put a call out to a dear woman, Denise, who I KNOW loves her bread.  I mean her blogs name is The Bread Fairy.....duh!?!  I needed a recipe. She'd be able to point me in the right direction, I was sure of it!

This week was a little hectic (not because I was busy per say but because I haven't been feeling great) and I had wanted to find a recipe that I could make in advance, freeze or refrigerate and bake on site.
Denise came through!

Thank you darlin!  They were spectacular.

Here's how I made them:
Basic Roll Dough
1 c. milk
3 tbsp. margarine
2 3/4 to 3 1/4 c. all purpose flour
1/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 package active dry yeast
1 egg

Over medium heat, warm milk and margarine until warm (not simmering or boiling). 
In the bowl of your stand mixer with your paddle attachment, blend warm liquid, 1 cup flour, sugar, salt, egg and add the yeast after you've started mixing at low speed until moistened.  Beat 2 minutes at medium speed. 
Switch to a dough hook and add remaining flour to form a soft dough. 
On well floured surface, turn out the dough and form a ball.  Place dough in an oil bowl, cover let rise until light and doubled in size 45 to 60 minutes.
Punch down dough.  Cut and shape into rolls, place on a baking sheet and bake about 8-10 minutes in a preheated 300F oven to set (they should not have colour)
Cool completely and either refrigerate or freeze.
When you are ready to heat and serve, preheat your oven to 400F and bake for about 10-12 minutes.
