Turkey Dinner Rolls

Turkey Dinner Rolls

I got this cute idea from the Food Nanny on the BYU Channel --- I followed her instructions to make the rolls into the shape of turkeys, as you can see from the pictures above.  They are absolutely adorable!!  I think my grandchildren will like them!!  I did not use her recipe.

Legendary Lion House Rolls

2 cups warm water
2/3 cup nonfat dry milk
2 Tablespoons dry yeast
1/4 cup sugar
2 Teaspoons salt
1/3 cup butter
1 egg
5 to 5 1/2 cups all purpose flour

In your mixer combine water and dry milk.  Stir until dissolved.  Add yeast, sugar, salt, butter, egg and 2 cups flour.  Mix on low speed until ingredients are wet, then for 2 minutes on medium speed.  Add 2 more cups flour, and mix on low speed until ingredients are wet, and 2 minutes on medium speed.  Add remaining flour (I only add one more cup, and leave out the last 1/2).  Once combined, knead with hands, or turn on your kneading function on your bread mixer.  Place dough in a oiled bowl.  Turn over once so dough is covered with oil.  Cover with plastic, and let rise in a warm place until double in size.  Place dough on floured surface.  Roll out dough, cut rolls into desired shape and size.  Place on a greased or parchment paper lined baking pan.  Let rise in warm place until rolls are doubled in size.  Bake at 375 degrees oil for 15 to 20 minutes or until browned.

*Note:  I greased my muffin pans and pulled the little beak out just a little and put them in the muffin tin and pressed the dough down in the muffin tin.  Pictures I hope help you understand the process.  It was fun and easy!!
