Rolls Rolls Rolls!

mMm. Bread is soooo good! I was excited that I finally was able to make rolls that rose and were not uber dense and could essentially be used as hockey pucks! I was determined that this year I would make some fabulous rolls for Thanksgiving and this is the recipe I'm going to use!

Sunday Dinner Rolls

Found via All Recipes

1 (.25 oz) package active dry yeast
1/2 c warm water
1 pinch white sugar
1/2 c white sugar
2 eggs
1 c warm water
1/2 c vegetable oil
1 t salt
3 c all purpose flour
1 egg, lightly beaten for egg wash

1. In a large bowl, stir yeast, 1/4 cup warm water, and a pinch of sugar.

2. In another bowl, beat eggs in 1 cup warm water; add oil and salt. Mix egg mixture into yeast, and add sugar. Gradually add flour.

3. Cover with a damp cloth, and allow to stand at room temperature for 1 hour, then place in the refrigerator and allow to rise overnight. This dough is rather sticky, and will raise to at least twice it's size.

4. Divide the dough into 4 equal parts. Roll each section out into a circle on a floured board or wax paper. Cut into pizza slice shapes, and roll slices large end to small end.

5. Place on greased flat baking pans, and allow to rise for 2 hours. Brush tops of rolls lightly with egg wash. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 8 minutes.
