Rosemary Dinner Rolls

Rosemary Dinner Rolls

Rosemary Dinner Rolls

Makes 28 Dinner Rolls

1 tbsp yeast
1 cup lukewarm water, divided
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 large egg
3 tbsp organic raw sugar
3 ¼  cups flour: 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour; 1¼  cups of unbleached white flour
½  tsp black pepper
2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary

1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt (Make sure to add at the correct time.)
2 tbsp melted butter

  1. In a small bowl, mix together the yeast with ¼ cup of the water.  Sprinkle in a pinch of      sugar.  If yeast mixture turns foamy within about 5 minutes, you are      good to go. If not, then the yeast is probably dead.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer,  combine the rest of the water, olive oil, egg, sugar, black pepper, rosemary, garlic powder and remaining yeast mixture.  Do NOT add the salt yet.
  3. Add the flour and mix on  medium-low speed with the hook until the dough comes together, about 2  minutes.  The dough should clean the sides of the bowl.  If not,      add additional flour by the tbsp until it does.
  4. Increase speed to medium and  knead the dough for 5 minutes.
  5. Cover the bowl with a damp towel and let the dough rise for 20 minutes. Add the salt and mix the dough on low speed for 1  minute.
  6. Transfer the dough to a large  bowl that has been lightly greased with oil. Cover it with a damp towel  and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, 1-1 1/2 hours.
  7. Grease the bottoms and sides of an 11-inch baking/Springform pan or Cast Iron Skillet.
  8. Turn out the dough onto a  lightly floured surface. Divide the dough in half and pinch off 14 pieces of dough the size of a golf ball from each half.  Roll into rounds      and place in the pan about ½ inch apart (they should fill the pan after      the final rising).
  9. Cover with a damp towel and  let them rise for 20 minutes + oven preheating time. The rolls should expand to fill up the entire pan, if you can see more than a couple of  spots of the bottom of the pan, let them rise a bit longer.
  10. Preheat oven to 350. Brush  the rolls with half of the melted butter and bake for 20 to 30 minutes, until golden brown. Remove them from the oven and brush with remaining butter. Serve immediately or at room temperature.
