Ingredients

Rolls

  • 1/2 cup warm water 30 seconds in the microwave; think hot bathwater
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Maple Butter

  • 1/4 cup salted butter very soft
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon maple extract optional

Instructions

Rolls

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a 6” round cake pan (or other similar sized pan) with cooking spray.
  • Place the water, olive oil, sugar, and yeast in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook. Let the mixture rest for 15 minutes. It will be very frothy when your timer rings! Mix in the salt and flour using the dough hook. Start on “Stir” for a few seconds, until the flour starts to incorporate. Switch to “2” for about 30 seconds and then kick it up to “3” until the dough completely comes together. You know it’s done when all of the dough will join to form a ball and the sides of the bowl are almost clean (no dough left). If your dough is too wet, add an additional tablespoon or two of flour.
  • Place dough on a cutting board and section into 4 balls. Place the rolls prepared pan. Let rest for 5 more minutes.
  • Bake for about 11-15 minutes, until the tops start to get golden. Enjoy with dinner, or for breakfast with maple butter.

Maple Butter

  • Whisk all ingredients in a small bowl. Store covered in refrigerator, best served at room temperature.
