Soft Dinner Rolls
 
681 grams Bread Flour (~ 4 Cups)
388 grams Water , very cold (~ 1 Cup)
9 grams instant yeast (~1 Tbsp)
11 grams Salt (~1/2 Tbsp)
64 grams Sugar (~4 Tbsp)
32 grams Milk Powder (~2 Tbsp)
64 grams Butter, softened (~4 Tbsp)
100 grams Eggs (~2 eggs)
 
 In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, add the cold water, eggs, milk, sugar, salt and yeast. Add the flour on top and start mixing on low speed for 4 minutes. This is the time to adjust consistency. Add water or Flour as needed to make a soft but not too sticky dough. Increase mixer speed to medium and mix dough for another 5 minutes. Lower speed to low and slowly add the butter until is fully incorporated. Transfer dough to a oiled container, cover well and allow to rest for 20 minutes. Once rested transfer to a clean surface, using a bench scraper, cut the dough into 32 equal pieces. If you have a scale cut dough into 1.5 Oz peaces. Roll the dough pieces into balls and place in a parchment lined sheet pan. Allow to rise in a warm humid place for around 45 minutes or until rolls are double in size. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 10 minutes or until golden. Serve warm with butter.
