Fancy Dinner Rolls in a Jar


1/4 c. butter

1 t. salt

1/4 c. water

1 c. milk

1/4 c. sugar

1 T. yeast

1 egg, beaten

4-5 cups flour

Small decorative mason jars

1 T. butter, melted

1/4 t. fresh garlic, finely minced

1/4 t. dried rosemary

1.   Heat milk, butter, salt, water and sugar in saucepan on stove, over medium heat,  until warm and sugar is dissolved.  (Very important that it is not too hot because you will kill your yeast and cook the eggs)  Pour mixture into your stand mixing bowl that has a dough hook attachment.  Add yeast and eggs and let stand until frothy.  Add 2 cups of flour and mix until incorporated.  Scrapes down sides and start adding flour 1/2 cup at a time to make a soft dough (in my Bosch mixer that is when the doughs stops sticking to the sides).  Let knead in your mixer for 1 minute.  Place in a large greased bowl and let rise until double in size.

2.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Place jars on a cookie sheet and spray with non-stick cooking spray. After dough has risen, punch down.  Form balls of dough and place one in each jar, making sure dough fills up half of the jar.  Let rise again till double in size.

3.  In small bowl, mix butter, garlic, and rosemary.  Brush butter mixture on top of each roll.  Bake for 18-20 minutes or until lightly browned.  Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes.  Serve while warm.  Enjoy!
