Parker House Dinner Rolls Judys Foodies Style!

The warm soft inside with a light crust on the outside these are tender & flavorful rolls perfect anytime! These are very easy to make & you will be amazed at how good they taste compared to any roll out of a can or reheated rolls that you  bought from a bakery! 

1 Packet of Yeast
1/4 Cup Warm Water
1/4 MINUS 1 heaping TBS Sugar
3/4 Plain Yogurt
6 TBS Butter
3 & 1/2 Cups Flour
2 TBS Vegetable Oil
1 Beaten Egg
1 TSP Salt
3 TBS Melted Butter to be used in a later step DO NOT ADD TO THE DOUGH!
Sprinkle yeast over the warm water & add 1 pinch of sugar. Stir & let sit 5 minutes so yeast can work up into a light foam. Set aside. Heat yogurt & butter the 6 TBS of butter in microwave until butter melts . Do not let this get hot you just want warm to melt the butter. I did mine at 50% power in the microwave at 40 second intervals & stirred each time until butter melted. It was nicely melted & yogurt was warm. This is what you want. If it gets hot let cool to warm & then proceed. Add yeast mixture to the warm yogurt & stir. Add the rest of the sugar, oil, egg & salt & mix well. Slowly add in the flour until you have a nice soft dough. Turn dough out onto a well flour surface & knead about 5 minutes working in more flour until dough is no longer sticking to your floured hands & dough feels bouncy. Put into a deep bowl cover & let rise in warm place until dough doubles. Once double punch dough down & turn back out onto that well floured surface. Roll out until you have an 18 inch rectangle. Cut into 6 even lines down the rectangle & 6 even lines across!
       This is what your going to have once you get to this step!
Now spray your muffin tin that holds 1 dozen muffins. Roll each square into a ball & place 3 balls per muffin well!I turn the corners of each square under towards the center & kept working them into a ball. It works well!             
Brush each roll with the melted butter. Let rise in a warm spot until double! Now beat 1 egg with 1 TBS of milk & bake at 375  degrees for about 15 minutes. They should be nicely browned & sound slightly hollow when you tap them. Once baked turn out of their pan & serve hot with plenty of butter & jam is nice too! 
LOOK AT HOW SOFT & FLAKY THESE ARE! They also heat well in the microwave so you do not feel rushed at dinner time. This makes 12 big Parker House Rolls that you will be proud of!
