Sweet Roll Dough
Serves: 10 rolls
  • 3 1⁄2 to 3 3⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 (1⁄4-ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 1⁄2 cup whole milk
  • 1⁄2 cup sour cream
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1⁄3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  1. In the work bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine flour and yeast.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine milk, sour cream, butter, sugar, and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture reads 120° to 130° on a candy thermometer. With mixer on low speed, add milk mixture to flour mixture. Add egg. Beat until dough forms. Turn off mixer.
  3. Switch to dough hook attachment. Beat at medium speed until dough is smooth and elastic, approximately 5 minutes. (Dough should pull away from sides of bowl but stick to bottom.)
  4. Spray a large bowl with nonstick cooking spray. Place dough in prepared bowl, turning to coat top. Cover, and let rise in a warm draft-free place (85°) until dough has doubled in size, approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes.
