Homestyle Cookin' | 30 Minute Yeast Rolls

This was one of the very first recipes I made when I first sign up on Pinterest. I thought to myself, "if this doesn't turn out amazing, then Pinterest just isn't worth it".

Well...

They didn't turn out amazing......

They turned out AHHHHHHHHMazing!!!!!

So awesome. Now, don't get me wrong, my 6 hour long process of regular yeast rolls are much more yummier, but these, these are pretty gosh darn yummy!!

I started by writing the recipe down, quickly and scribbly as all of my recipes seem to be.  I don't know why I do this to myself.  When I need to use the recipe again, I can never read my own writing!!  must.slow.down.

Don't do this.....
 
Print the recipe above.
Mix water, oil, yeast and sugar in a bowl.  Let sit or 15 mins.  It will look like this when it's ready. Of course, you should never use a metal bowl or spoon when working with yeast, but who cares -- consider me a rebel.

Mix in salt, egg and flour.  Knead until well incorporate and dough is soft and smooth.  Similar to this.  I eventually added a little more flour.

Butter dish.  And use butter, not spray....duh.  It's soooo much better! 
Oh, and don't mind the booster seat and the envelope box. Multi -tasking, people!
(of course, these photos were taken almost a year ago)

Ah, yes, see, I added more flour to the outside to help my hands work with it.  I didn't take a photo of what it look like after it was kneaded.

So you're supposed to have round balls, but, yeah I just plopped them into the pan.  They tasted just as good!  Next time around I'll use a smaller baking dish.

TA-DA!  This is what they looked like when they came out.  They aren't beautiful, see above, I didn't make "round balls" with my dough. My oven never gets my yeast rolls (and other things!) "golden brown".  I don't know why, and I don't ask as long as they are done and taste delish!!! 
I also should have used a much smaller pan -- don't do what I did....
Oh right, I also smothered the tops with unsalted butter. 

Yes, it is that simple.
And now that it's fall, you can throw some fresh apple butter on this fluffy goodness and repent later.

You're welcome.
