Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp. dry active or instant yeast
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • cinnamon/sugar
  • melted butter

Instructions

  • Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Mix in margarine; stir until melted. Let cool until lukewarm.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 1/4 cup flour, yeast, sugar and salt; mix well. Add water, egg and the milk mixture; beat well. Add the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. When the dough has just pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes.
  • Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Divide dough into 2" balls. Roll out each ball into a rope/snake shape. Bring the ends together and twist to form the ears. Place on a greased baking sheet.
  • Break another ball in thirds and use a small piece of that dough to fill the hole that will be under the twist that you made for the ears. You won't even notice that there was a hole after the dough rises and bakes. 
  • Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Bake in the preheated oven 15-18 minutes, or until browned. Brush hot rolls with melted butter and sprinkle (liberally) with cinnamon/sugar.
  • Drizzle with icing if desired.
  • Serve warm.
