Overnight Refrigerator Dinner Rolls

Overnight Refrigerator Dinner Rolls
These rolls were originally inspired by a recipe from BHG. The only issue I had with them was that they had the first rise overnight, then the second rise was before baking them, which doesn't seem like a timesaver at all. So instead, I adapted a recipe from Martha Stewart, mainly reducing the amount of rolls it made. Because if I made 18 rolls, I would eat all the rolls. Miss F may have a couple, but I would eat the rest. Bread is my most favorite food. If you have noticed, I have been baking a lot of bread lately. C hates the smell of fresh baked bread, so now that he is gone during the week, I can bake and bake. And the house smells fantastic. And I end up eating a ton of bread. These rolls would be perfect for Thanksgiving since they can be prepped the night before and baked up while the turkey is resting.
Overnight Refrigerator Dinner Rolls

1 cup warm water
2 ¼ teaspoons yeast
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted, plus more for pan and brushing
1 large egg, lightly beaten
½ teaspoon salt
3 cups flour, plus more for shaping dough

Add warm water to a stand mixer bowl; sprinkle with the yeast, and let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes. Add sugar, butter, eggs, and salt; whisk to combine. Add flour; mix until incorporated and a sticky dough forms. Swap out for the dough hook attachment and knead for 5 minutes. Brush the top of dough with butter; cover bowl with plastic wrap, and set aside in a warm place until dough has doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

Turn dough out onto a floured work surface. Roll into a log and cut into thirds, cut into thirds again to end up with 9 rolls. Brush a 8-inch cake pan with butter. One at a time, flatten each piece of dough, then fold edges toward the center, pressing to secure, until a smooth ball forms. Place dough balls in prepared pan, smooth side up. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove plastic wrap; brush rolls with melted butter. Bake until golden and rolls sound hollow when tapped on bottom, 25 to 30 minutes. Pull rolls apart, and serve warm.
