Molly's Rolls

This is the recipe for my all-time favorite "quick" rolls. This is my go to recipe for rolls! These are so delicious I have made this recipe probably a dozen times. They are easy and come out fluffy yet chewy at the same time. I have changed up several of the ingredients in the times I have made them to make them as healthy as possible. I wish I had a wheat grinder... but until then these delicious rolls are well worth any amount of calories needed to consume them. Just try to hold yourself back better than I can and eat 1 or 2 instead of 4 or 5....  :-)

Molly’s Rolls
Adapted from Real Mom Kitchen

1 cup warm water
1 cup warm milk (I just heat it in the microwave for 30 seconds and let it sit while the yeast bubbled; I recommend using whole milk because it will help your rolls to have a better consistency but if you absolutely need to cut back on fat and calories I have used skim milk before with success)
1/3 cup honey
1 package yeast(2 1/4 teaspoon)
2 Tbsp + 2 tsp olive oil
2 Tbsp + 2 tsp applesauce
1/2 T salt
1 egg, beaten (or 2 egg whites)
flour (I ended up using around 5 cups)

In mixer combine yeast, honey, and warm water; let grow until bubbly (about 5 minutes). Add milk and mix. Mix in oil, applesauce and egg. Slowly add 2 cups flour, mix and then add salt. Add 1/2 cup flour at a time until it comes away from side of bowl. Place in a greased glass or metal bowl, cover with a clean cloth and let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes. Form rolls as desired and place on a greased cookie sheet. Cover again with a clean cloth and let rise an additional 30 minutes. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Brush hot rolls with melted butter. I made 2 dozen with this recipe.
