Soft Oat Rolls Recipe

An old friend served these rolls when my family went to her house for Sunday dinner several years ago. I made sure I had a copy of the recipe before leaving.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 15 min. YIELD:18 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 cups boiling water
  • 2/3 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 3-1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, pour boiling water over cereal. Add the butter and salt. Let stand until mixture cools to 110°-115°, stirring occasionally. Add the sugar, egg, yeast and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
  • 3. Roll to 1/2-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-1/2-in biscuit cutter. Place 2 in. apart on lightly greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 4. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Serve warm. Yield: about 1-1/2 dozen.
