Shredded Wheat Feather Rolls
Just as their name implies, these delicious dinner rolls are tender and as light as a feather. The recipe was originally printed on the Nabisco shredded wheat cereal box many years ago.
2 (0.25-ounce) packages active dry yeast, or 4 1/2 teaspoons
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 large eggs
4 cups all-purpose or bread flour
1 1/2 cups shredded wheat cereal (Nabisco's original large biscuit type is best)
- Dissolve yeast in warm water, set aside.
- Combine warm milk, butter, sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl; stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add the yeast mixture and eggs to the milk mixture; mix well. Slowly add flour. Stir in shredded wheat cereal; beat at medium speed with an electric mixer for 1 minute, scraping the bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled in bulk.
- Punch the dough down and shape into 3/4-inch balls; place 3 balls in each cup of a greased muffin tin. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 45 minutes, or until doubled.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 375°F (190°C) for 18 to 20 minutes.
Makes 12 dinner rolls.
