I know what you are thinking.... Oh wow ... Another no-knead roll recipe, great. I know by now you have seen hundreds of these recipes with little or a lot of modifications. This one is a keeper. It has got to be the easiest and the best tasting I have ever baked. They are soooooooo delicious. If you want to experience real pleasure, stop reading Fifty Shades of Gray and submit yourself to the power of a hot, steamy out of the oven no-knead roll. Just be prepared to hear people at the table moaning, and asking for more.
2 packages of active dry yeast
2 cups warm water
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons salt
6-6.5 cups of all-purpose flour
1 cup of butter or margarine softened
In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add egg and butter and mix well. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (do not knead). Cover and refrigerate overnight or all day.
Remove from refrigerator and punch down dough. Work with dough in thirds, shaping anyway you want. Place rolls on a greased baking sheet; cover and let rise until it doubles, about 1 hour. Brush rolls with butter. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown.
Makes approximately 4 dozen rolls.
