Recipe of the month Easy Fantastic Rolls
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)
In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add 2 cups of flour, then 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.
