Hot Rolls


No feast would be complete without good hot yeast rolls. My Great- Grandmother Myers could bake rolls that made you cry they were so good.


anyway these are also good. Don't forget the butter.


Ingredients

  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 6 to 6-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, egg, oil, salt and 4 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down; turn onto a lightly floured surface. Divide into four portions. Shape each portion into 12 balls. To form knots, roll each ball into an 8-in. rope; tie into a knot. Tuck ends under. Place rolls 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 4 dozen
