Easy Rolls

These are a nice, light dinner roll that I’ve made on several occasions. Alas, I don’t remember where I got this recipe.

Easy Rolls


1 1/2 cu warm water
1 T active dry yeast
2 T sugar (or 1 T honey)
2 T olive oil
1 t salt
4 cu all-purpose flour

1) in large bowl, combine water, sugar, and yeast; let sit for 10 minutes
2) add oil, salt, and 2 cu flour; turn onto lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, adding flour as needed
3) place in lightly oiled bowl, turning to coat all sides; cover and let rise until doubled (~1 hour)
4) punch down and turn onto lightly floured surface; divide into 16 pieces and form into rounds
5) place rounds on greased cookie sheet 2″ apart, cover, and let rise until doubled (~40 minutes)
6) pre-heat oven to 350 degrees; bake 10-15 minutes or until golden brown
