CZECH ROLLS 1 - Ceske Rohliky 1

1 cup of warm milk
1/3 cup of warm water
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp of dry yeast
5 oz. of soft (room temperature) vegetable shortening (I used butter sometimes if I do not have shortening)
3 and ½ cups all purpose flour
2 and 1/2 tsp salt

Put milk and water into a glass/ceramic bowl, add sugar and microwave it for 30 seconds. Add yeast and let sit. In the mean time, mix flour with 2 tsp. of salt. Mix the milk mixture with the flour mixture and butter together and knead it into dough. Let rise for one hour. Roll out the dough int a circle and cut into four up to eight triangles. Starting at the longest side, roll the triangle into a croissant shape. Place on your cookie sheet that is either greased, or lined with a parchment paper. Let your rolls sit for about ½ hour in a warm area. Before baking brush with milk.

Bake in the oven on 400F for about 10 minutes, then another 10 minutes on 375F.

Note: You can sprinkle with salt or poppy seed on top of your rolls. Also, you can substitute one table spoon of all purpose flour for one table spoon of rye flour. This recipe makes about 8 medium size rolls.

See the video, how to roll your rolls.
