Rapid Rolls

These rolls are great for a Sunday morning.  In fact, just last week, my mom called and asked if we wanted to come for dinner.  She asked if I had a baguette that I could bring, I didn't.  But in 1 1/2 hours, start to finish, I was able to have these rolls ready.

Rapid Rolls

from Kelsey Nixon
3 (.25-ounce) packets active dry yeast
1 3/4 cups warm water
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup melted butter, plus more for brushing
2 teaspoons salt, plus more for sprinkling
2 large eggs, beaten
4 to 6 cups flour, plus more if needed

In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the instant yeast, and warm water. Let it activate for 5 minutes until bubbly. Stir in the honey. On low speed, add 1/2 cup melted butter, 2 teaspoons salt, and eggs. Slowly add the flour cup-by-cup until fully incorporated and the dough pulls away from the sides of the mixing bowl. Add more flour if it is too sticky. Portion the dough into 2 even servings. Roll into a circle, and cut into 24 wedges.  Roll up and place on a baking sheet spaced evenly apart. Set aside and allow to rise approximately 20 minutes, or until doubled in size. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Brush the rolls with melted butter. Bake for 25 minutes until the tops are golden brown. Remove from the oven and brush with more melted butter, and sprinkle with a little salt.
