rolls? really?

FINALLY!
i think i have found a recipe for homemade rolls that i can't completely ruin. it's no secret that i love to cook and bake, but when it comes to yeast breads i feel like a total failure. actually that was yesterday. thanks to a recipe from a friend at church, today is looking much brighter!


"Feel Good About Yourself Rolls"
(i changed the name)
1 3/4 C warm water
1/2 C oil
1/2 C sugar
3 TBS. yeast
Combine above and let sit until yeast is bubbly. Then add:
2 eggs
5-5 1/2 C flour
1 tsp salt
Mix well, then pour onto conter and knead until smooth. Add flour as needed, but use as little as you can get away with. Spray the bowl before returning dough to it. Allow to rise until at least double in size. Divide dough into 4 balls, roll each ball into an 8" circle(or so) and cut into 8 wedges. Roll like cresents and place on greased pan. Allow to rise about 15 minutes. Bake at 375 for 10-12 min.


Can also substitute all or part wheat flour

Can also allow to rise only once(on pan).

Can also be made into sweet rolls (but they will be gone sooner)

Sara - We must be kindred spirits...I suck at yeast breads too! Well...you don't anymore! Way to go girl! I am totally going to try this recipe, thanks for posting it!

OK Sara, I'm going to try this, but only because you and I have the exact same issue - BREAD. I can't make it to save my life, except for in the bread maker. These sound so easy though, and look so yummy. Maybe I'll try it!

I may have to try this recipe. I made bread the other day and it was the first time I have ever done anything with yeast and that was quite the adventure...
