Cornmeal Dinner Rolls

A flavorful sidekick to chilies, soups, and stews, these biscuits can also stand alone with a simple pat of butter and drizzle of honey. —Brynn Rader, Olympia, Washington

  • Makes
    2-1/2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/3 cup cornmeal
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4-3/4 to 5-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • TOPPING:
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal

Directions

  • In a large saucepan, combine the milk, sugar, butter, cornmeal and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; cook and stir until thickened, 5-8 minutes. Cool to 110° - 115°.
  • In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, cornmeal mixture, yeast mixture and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover with plastic wrap; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 30 balls. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover with a clean kitchen towel; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • Uncover rolls; brush with melted butter and sprinkle with cornmeal. Bake at 375° until golden brown, 13-17 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks; serve warm.
