Herbed Dinner Rolls
1 cup warm water
2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 -1 1/2 teaspoon herbs, of your choice (I like to use Italian seasoning )
3 1/4 cups flour (I use All Purpose, but you could use Bread Flour )
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
Place ingredients in your Bread machine in order directed by your manual.
2 Run dough cycle.
3 After 2-3 minutes check dough, if it seems wet add a tablespoon or two of flour. If it seems very dry add a tablespoon or two of water.
4 When cycle is complete place dough on lightly floured surface.
5 Divide dough into 12 equal pieces and shape into rolls.
6 Place on a greased baking sheet ( can use greased 9x13 pan, Rolls can be touching lightly).
7 Bake in a 375 degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
8 you can brush some melted butter on the rolls before or after baking and sprinkle with some coarse salt, but the rolls will turn out just great even without the extra butter.
