Sweet Dinner Rolls

This is the roll recipe that I make when I run out of fancy things like butter and honey :). Also, it is dairy free.

1 1/2 cup water
1 egg
1/3 cup oil
4 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3 1/2 tsp yeast

Mix the yeast, warm water and 1 tbsp of the sugar and let sit until bubbles form. Then add the rest of the ingredients, leaving the flour until the end. After kneading, the dough should be moist but not sticky. I usually end up adding a bit more flour. Put in a bowl, cover and let rise for an hour or so, until doubled.

Punch down the dough, and divide. This will make 12 big rolls (hamburger bun size) or 18-24 small rolls. Cover and let rise for 45 minutes.

Cook at 350 for 15 minutes, until golden brown.
