Marilyn's Roll Recipes
oatmeal collection reminded me how
hungry I am for these rolls; don't think
of them much in hot weather but with
cooler mornings and Sharon's list, they
popped into mind.
3 Way Oatmeal
#1: Dinner Rolls
1 c. water
T. butter or margarine
1/2 c. Quick
Oats (but NOT instant)
1/2 T. white
1/4 c. warm (about 100º) water
2 1/2 tsp. bread machine yeast
packed brown sugar
2 1/8 c. bread
flour....and very possibly quite a bit
more, you need it to handle them
1 c. water & the butter to a boil; add
oats & cook 1 minute, no more, stirring
continously; set off heat to cool to
110º; about 20 minutes. In a measuring
cup, mix the warm 1/4 c. water, the
white sugar, & yeast; let stand 5
minutes. Pour cooled oat mixture into
bread pan, then the yeast mixture; add
brown sugar, flour, & salt.
Process on Quick Dough cycle. At end of
cycle, without lifting the lid, let rise
35 to 45 minutes more. Turn out onto a
very heavily floured board; knock down
very slightly and do not knead. Cut &
form into 16 balls & put into a lightly
greased 9" round pan, 11 around the
out-er row & 5 in the center. Sprinkle
with raw oatmeal, cover with wax paper;
raise 35 minutes or till doubled. Bake
at 375º 15 - 18 minutes, no more or
you'll lose the wonderful moist quality
of these rolls.
They should be a
golden brown. Cool on a rack.
#2: Herb Cloverleaf
Make the same dough,
adding 1 to 3 T. Parmesan cheese if you
like it.* Can be omitted altogether.
While dough rises in the machine,
melt 3 T. margarine in a soup plate; &
mix, on a paper plate, 1 tsp. minced
chives, 1/2 tsp. dried basil, & 1/2 tsp.
dried rosemary.* The cheese can be added
here, to the herbs, instead of being
incorporated into the dough, if you
prefer. Knock down as above; cut into 12
pieces, then divide each of these into 3
small balls. Dip into margarine, then
into herbs, and drop 3 balls into each
of 12 lightly greased muffin cups. Cover
& raise as above.. Bake at 375º for 25 -
28 minutes; cool on a rack.
#3: Glazed Sweet
Make dough & turn
out as above; turn & pat in a bit more
flour till you are able to roll it out
into a 16" by
3 T. melted butter or
c. packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp.
Roll up from the
long side. Cut into 16 slices. Put into
a lightly greased 9" x 13" pan, cover
with wax paper, and let rise in a warm
place till doubled, about 30 minutes.
Bake at 375º for 20 - 25 minutes, till
Meanwhile, make a
1/2 c. powdered sugar,
sifted or sieved
2 tsp. milk
Drizzle over the
warm rolls after they come from the
oven. Cool in and serve from their pan.
Notes for all:
chill overnight after second rising; let
stand at room temp. 30 minutes, then
OR freeze after second
rising; thaw overnite in 'fridge, let
stand & bake as for chilled rolls.
ALSO freeze after baking quite well;
re-heat in foil at 350º for about 20
minutes straight from freezer.
