Easy Fantastic RollsPamela Bruns, Mt. Prospect

Ingredients

  • 2 packages yeast
  • ¾ c water at 100-110° F
  • 4 ½ c all purpose, unbleached flour
  • ½ c fresh local honey
  • 1 ½ t salt
  • 2 large eggs slightly beaten
  • 1 stick butter
  • Sesame seeds, optional

 

Instructions

In large bowl dissolve yeast in water.  Add 2 cups of flour and add honey, salt, eggs, and butter.  Mix well before adding remaining 2 ½ cups flour.  Stir until smooth.  Dough will be soft, but it is not necessary to knead.  Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise to 80-85 degrees at least 2 hours.  Pinch off approximately 2-inch pieces of dough and shape into smooth balls tucking edges together.  Place smooth side up on greased pan, about 1 inch apart.  Brush tops with melted butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.  Allow to rise again until doubled, about 2 hours.  Pre-heat oven to 425° and bake for 10-12 minutes.  If you are using a conventional oven, bake at 350° for 9 minutes turning if necessary.  Makes about 2 dozen.
