We absolutely LOVE my ricotta rolls, and so does everyone else I've ever made them for, but I don't always have ricotta on hand, so I wanted to try to find another yummy recipe, and I found this one, and it certainly comes in a very close second to my ricotta rolls. These are so soft and sweet and delicious! The first time I made them (because I've made them a few times since), all I did was literally stand there and butter them and hand them out and my family ate every single one straight from the pan. :-) I got the recipe from allrecipes originally.
1 cup hot water
1/3 cup sugar
1 packet of active dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
3/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp canola/coconut/Olive oil
3- 3 1/2 cups bread flour
Put all ingredients, ending with water, in stand mixer. Turn mixer on low until blended and then alternate between high and medium until it forms a smooth ball of dough. Divide dough up, roll into balls and flatten some, and place onto a cookie sheet. Makes about 14-16 rolls. Keep about 1-2 inches apart, so they have room to rise. Cover with clean, dry towel, and allow to sit for 1-2 hours to rise. Bake at 350 degrees 13-15 minutes or just until lightly browned on top. You can also make these in your bread maker by making the dough in the bread maker and then rolling into balls.
