Golden Honey Pan Rolls

A cousin in North Carolina gave me the recipe for these delicious honey-glazed rolls. Using my bread machine to make the dough saves me about 2 hours compared to the traditional method. The rich buttery taste of these rolls is so popular with family and friends that I usually make two batches so I have enough! —Sara Wing, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

    2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm 2% milk (70° to 80°)
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 large egg yolk, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3-1/2 cups bread flour
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 large egg white
  • Additional honey, optional

Directions

  • In bread machine pan, place the first 8 ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed.)
  • When cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Punch down; cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Divide into 24 pieces; shape each into a ball. Place 12 balls each in 2 greased 8-in. square baking pans. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • For glaze, combine the sugar, butter, honey and egg white; drizzle over dough. Bake at 350° until golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Brush with additional honey if desired.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Dissolve yeast in warm milk. In another bowl, combine egg, egg yolk, oil, honey, salt, yeast mixture and 2 cups flour; beat on medium speed 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 top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch down dough; cover and let rest 10 minutes. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Divide and shape into 24 balls; place 12 each in 2 greased 8x8-in. baking pans. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350° glaze and bake as directed.
