Dinner Rolls - no kneading and ready in an hour


■1 package quick-acting active dry yeast

■1 1/3 cup milk (105º to 115ºF degrees)

■3 to 3 1/2 cups flour or whole wheat flour

■3 tablespoons olive oil

■1 tablespoon sugar

■1 teaspoon salt

■1 tablespoon melted butter

■coarse salt

Dissolve yeast in warm milk with sugar in electric mixer bowl. Stir in 1 cup flour, oil, and salt. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour, scraping dough from side of bowl, until soft dough forms. Cover and let rise in warm place until double, about 45 minutes.

Heat oven 400ºF degrees. Prep a 12 cup muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Punch down dough in center and fold over a few times. Pinch off 1 inch balls of dough and quickly roll in palm of hands. Put 3 balls to one muffin cup; brush with melted butter; sprinkle with coarse salt.

Bake 12 to 15 minutes, until crust is light golden brown. Immediately remove from pan. Store loosely covered.
