Yeast Rolls

Yeast Rolls

In a small bowl, mix together:

1 cup warm water

1 teaspoon sugar

1 package yeast (or 2 1/4 teaspoons)


Let this stand until yeast bubbles up.


In a separate large mixing bowl, mix together:

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 cup warm water


Combine yeast mixture with the oil mixture. Add about 6 cups all purpose flour, gradually stirring in 1 cup at a time. Knead well, then place dough in a large greased bowl to rise. Cover with plastic wrap, and let rise until double in size (about 2 1/2 - 3 hours). Knead again, and form dough into rolls. Place in a greased 9 x 13-inch pan. Let rise again until rolls touch top of pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 30 minutes or until browned.
