One Hour Rolls

I got this recipe from my friend who got it from another friend.  I was eager to try a quick roll recipe.  Here's the recipe:

One Hour Rolls
4-5 cups of flour
1 1/2 Tbls rapid rise yeast
Mix together in a large bowl and set aside

In a microwavable bowl melt 1/4 butter (about 30 seconds)
Add the following to the melted butter:
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup water
3 Tbls sugar
1 tsp salt
Microwave for 2-2 1/2 minutes until warm not too hot.
Add to flour mixture with a wooden spoon.  Stir the dough as much as you can, then pour onto a floured counter and begin kneading, adding in more flour until it doesn't stick to your hands. Kneed between 6-8 minutes. Put back in bowl and cover with a towel, in a warm place let the dough rise 15 minutes. Form into balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Cover them with a towel again and let them rise in a warm place for another 15 min. Bake at 400 for 15-16 minutes. As soon as they come out rub them with butter. (This recipe can also be used to make Cinnamon rolls or you can roll it out and fill with meat and cheese and then roll it up to make a Stromboli)

I was very happy with the way these rolls looked after they raised.  They REALLY did raise in fifteen minutes in the bowl and fifteen minutes on the pan.  I used a time I will for sure use a cookie sheet.  :)  I always brush all of my rolls with butter before I put them in the oven to guarantee a nice golden brown on top, and I mixed this whole recipe with my Kitchen Aid.  This were definitely quicker than my usual roll recipe...a bit more of a yeasty taste than what we usually have (enough that Dave noticed I used a different recipe)...maybe I undercooked them a bit.  I would make these again, though, if I'm short on time :)

Is this the recipe you used to make the fast breadsticks during vacation?
