INGREDIENTS 

  • 2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 6 cups all-purpose flour

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Put the warm water in a small mixing bowl and add the yeast and 1 teaspoon of the sugar; stir to dissolve.
  2. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the remaining 15 teaspoons of sugar and the oil and mix until smooth.
  4. Add the salt, 1 cup of flour and the yeast mixture; stir well.
  5. Add the remaining 5 cups flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  6. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, supple and elastic; about 10 minutes.
  7. Lightly oil a large mixing bowl, place the dough in it and turn to coat the dough with oil.
  8. Cover with a damp towel or plastic wrap and let sit in a warm place until the dough has doubled in volume; about 1 hour.
  9. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 4 equal pieces.
  10. Form each piece into a cylinder and roll out until the ‘log’ is 1/2 inch in diameter. Using a sharp knife, cut each ‘log’ into 1/2 inch pieces. Place the pieces, flat side down, onto two lightly greased baking sheets.
  11. Gently press each roll down to flatten.
  12. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  13. Cover the rolls with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes.
  14. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
