Hot Rolls and Cinnamon Rolls
In a large mixer bowl put:
4 cups of very warm water, Stir into it
4 tablespoons of yeast (I buy mine at Sam’s in bulk very inexpensive)
1 cup of white sugar
2 teaspoons of salt
3 large eggs
1 cup of cooking oil
Mix with a big spoon and then put:
8 cups (not leveled) of white flour in this, and then I stir
with the big spoon just so when you start mixer it is a little mixed. Then
I mix for about 3 or 4 minutes until well blended. Then with beater still
in I let rise until doubled.
Then I beat down and put on floured board. I add just enough flour to take the sticky off of the dough. If I am making dinner rolls I just pinch off about one third of a cup of dough and put it in a pan which I have sprayed with Pam. One third of a cup of dough makes a nice dinner roll. When your pan has puffed up usually after about 30 minutes put it in a cold oven and set for about 300 degrees when you put it in a cold oven the heat of the oven rising makes the first batch rise up better, the rest makes no difference. When brown on bottom and top get out and brush with melted butter or margarine. YUM!!!
If making cinnamon rolls just roll out dough, I do mine in small batches and cover with soft margarine and sprinkle good with cinnamon and sugar usually about 2/3 cup of white sugar and 1/3 cup of cinnamon, I get my
cinnamon at Sam’s also.
Roll up cut off and put in a pan that has been sprayed with
Pam. Let rise and cook as directed above.
I just use a butter cream icing powdered sugar, soft margarine and pet milk and vanilla.
You can make wonderful sandwich buns if you put on a baking sheet a ½ cup of dough portions.
