Honey Dinner Rolls

Honey Dinner Rolls
I am a sucker for all things bread. As a kid, I think I lived off bread and butter. Miss F is usually more interested in the butter portion of bread and butter. These rolls were no exception. I served them for Easter dinner and Miss F was eating straight butter at one point. A fair word of warning: these rolls are HUGE. If you are local to Houston, they remind me of what they serve at 59 Diner. Which is a very good thing. Thanks so much to Averie Cooks for the amazing recipe that I adapted for the bread machine.
Honey Dinner Rolls

1 cup warm water
1 large egg
¼ cup honey
3 tablespoons canola oil
½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
4 cups bread flour
2 ¼ teaspoons instant dry yeast
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Whisk together the water, egg, honey, oil and salt. Pour into your bread machine. Add the flour on top and then sprinkle with the yeast. Run the bread machine on the dough cycle.

After the dough cycle is complete, punch the dough down to release the air bubbles, and turn it out onto a Silpat or floured work surface. Knead for about 1 minute. Mound dough into a ball, place it back into the bowl, cover it, and allow it to rest and relax for about 10 minutes, making it easier to shape into rolls.

Prepare a 9-by-13-inch baking pan by lining it with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray; set aside.

Place dough on Silpat or floured work surface, and using your hands, roll it into a long cylinder shape, about 12 to 15 inches in length, and it will about 3 to 4 inches in girth. Divide the log into 12 uniformly-sized pieces with a dough cutter or sharp knife. Roll each piece into a ball, creating surface tension on the top of the ball by stretching the dough over itself a bit and pinch off the bottom, tucking the dough into itself. Place each piece into the prepared pan, seam side down, uniformly spaced, four rows by three.

After all pieces are in the pan, cover it with plastic wrap and allow to dough to rise for about 30 minutes. While dough rises, preheat oven to 400 degrees.

After the rolls have risen and before baking, brush tops and sides of dough with the melted butter, getting into the sides and crevices and with a pastry brush. Bake rolls for about 15 minutes.
