Intermediate Serves
SKILL LEVEL 8 rolls
 
 
Fleischmann's®
 
 
Ingredients
 
1-1/4 cups warm water (100° to 110°F)
1 (2-1/4 tsp.) envelope Fleischmann's® Traditional Yeast
2 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons butter OR margarine, softened
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1 egg
3-1/4 to 3-3/4 cups bread flour
 
 
 
 
Instructions
 

Pour water into large mixer bowl.  Sprinkle in yeast and let rest 5 minutes.  Add sugar, butter, salt, egg and 2 cups flour; beat 2 minutes with electric mixer, scraping sides occasionally.  Beat in enough remaining flour to make soft dough.

Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 4 to 6 minutes.  Place in greased bowl, turning to coat top.  Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.

Punch dough down.  Remove to very lightly floured surface; divide into 8 equal pieces.  Form each piece into a smooth ball.   Flatten balls to 4-inch rounds.  Using a Kaiser roll stamp, firmly press into dough without (but almost) cutting completely through.  Place rolls, stamped side down, on a greased baking sheet, about 2 to 3 inches apart.  Let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 20 to 40 minutes.   Turn rolls over so stamped side is now UP.  For a more obvious indentation, carefully restamp before baking.  Bake in preheated 400°F oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until done.  Remove from baking sheet; let cool on wire rack.

Recipe Tip:  Don't have a Kaiser roll stamp?  Simply roll each portion of dough into a 12-inch rope.  For each roll, tie the rope into a loose knot.  You will have a "tail" on either side of the knot.  Begin with the tail on the top; wrap it underneath the knot, then push it through the hole (in the center).  Bring the lower tail over the top of the knot and push it down through the same hole.  Once formed, the roll will be a knot that will look the same on top and bottom.  Repeat with remaining portions to form all 8 rolls.  Place on baking sheets and let rise and bake, as directed above.
