The Good Rolls

These rolls are thanks to my neighbor Melissa.  My kids call them the good rolls.  If I make it with part whole wheat flour, then they are almost perfect according to my kids.  If I make them with all white flour then they think they have died and gone to heaven.

The Good Rolls

2 Tbsp dry yeast
2 c warm water, divided
2 eggs
1/2 c sugar
1 c powdered milk
2 tsp salt
1/2 c butter, softened
1 1/2 Tbsp dough enhancer
6 c flour (You can swap in 2 c wheat flour.  If you do add an extra 1/2 Tbsp dough enhancer and 1 Tbsp gluten)

Combine 1 c of the warm water with the yeast, set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine the other cup of water with the powdered milk, sugar, eggs, salt, and butter.  Stir fill combined.  Add in the proofed yeast. Stir.
Knead in the flour slowly.  Knead for 10-15 minutes.
Place dough in an oiled bowl, cover and let rise until double in size, about an hour.
Punch down dough and divide in half.
Roll out each half into a large circle on a greased surface and cut with a pizza cutter into 12 segments.  Roll up "croissant-style" and place on greased cookie sheets.  Cover and let rise for 15 minutes.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes or until golden.  Do not over cook!
