Auntie K's Dinner Rolls
Put in a bowl and set aside:(don't stir)
1/2 C. warm water
Sprinkle 2 T. yeast in water
Sprinkle 2 T. sugar on top
In a stand mixer add the following and mix:
2 cups hot water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil (I use canola)
2 tsp. salt
Now add the yeast mixture and 4 cups of flour
Add about 4 more cups of flour-l cup at a time-dough should be a little sticky
Mix until the dough is mixed well and forms a ball.
Place the dough in a large greased bowl (or I use the mixing bowl), lightly cover with plastic wrap and let dough double in size -at least 1 hr.
Shape in to rolls and place on a greased pan
Let rise at least 1/2 hr.
Bake 400 degrees for about 12 minutes-or until golden brown on top and bottom.
*You can make dinner rolls, sweet rolls, scones etc out this dough.
For Cinnamon Rolls-Roll out, spread with butter sprinkle with cinnamon
and sugar. Roll up and cut rolls( I use double thread to cut rolls)
You can make your own frosting or I use the Whipped vanilla frosting
in the can.
