rolls

We had dinner with Devin's boss and family on Sunday. His wife made these rolls and they were so good, she emailed me the recipe! Perfect for Thanksgiving.

2 tb. yeast
1 tsp. sugar
1 cup water
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
3 eggs
6 cups flour

To 3/4 c. lukewarm water in a small bowl, add 2 tbsp. yeast. Sprinkle 1 tsp. sugar on top to help activate.

In large bowl combine 1 c. room temperature water, 1 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 c. sugar, 1/2 c. oil, 3 eggs. Add yeast and stir. Add 6 c. flour. Mix well. Set aside until doubled in size (3 to 4 hours depending on the weather).

Sprinkle pastry sheet with flour. Knead until smooth (just for a minute or so). Divide dough in half. Roll first half out like a pizza, then cut into sixteen pizza shaped slices. Start at wide end of piece and roll to thin end, in a crescent shape. Place in greased jelly roll pan. Repeat with other half of dough. You will end up with two rows of 11 rolls and one row of 10. (I put the 10 largest ones in the center row.)Let rise until double in size (an hour or two). Bake at 375 for 14 minutes. Brush with melted butter.

Makes 32 rolls.

I'm making the rolls this year, so maybe I'll give these a try!

Do you think they are too complex for me?

Megg, I think they are pretty easy (or so she says...). I think you could totally do it.
