I originally got this recipe from the site Real Mom Kitchen, who got it from someone else who got it from someone named Molly. Molly, whoever you are, we all thank you.
1 cup warm water
1 cup warm milk (just put it in the microwave for 45 seconds)
1/3 cup sugar
1 pkg. yeast (2 1/4 tsp.)
1/3 cup oil
1/2 T. salt
flour (about 4 1/2 cups - I think I used 5 cups)
In mixer combine yeast, sugar, and warm water; let sit until bubbly. Add milk and mix. Mix in oil and egg. Slowly add 2 cups flour, mix and then add salt. Add 1/2 flour at a time until it comes away from the side of the bowl. Let rise in mixing bowl for about 30 minutes. Form rolls and place on greased cookie sheets. Let rise 30 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Brush with melted butter. Makes about 2 dozen.
