Sandwich Rolls

My kids are running around doing last minute Xmas stuff since they are finally off of work for a few days.  I decided to make them some sandwiches so they can eat on the fly.  I tried this new recipe for rolls this morning and they look really good.  Homemade rolls make a good sandwich great.
  • 2-1/4 tsp. rapid rise yeast
  • 4 tsp sugar
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • 1⅓ cups lukewarm water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
Mix all of the ingredients and kneed until you have a smooth ball of dough.  You might add up to 1/3 cup more flour.  Place the dough in an oiled bowl, cover and let rise until doubled.

 Remove the dough from the bowl and cut it into 6 pieces and shape into small loaves.  Cover them and let them rise for about 30 minutes.

Bake them in a 425 degree oven with a small pan of water to produce steam.  After 10 minutes, turn the oven to 400 and continue to bake for about 15-20 more minutes until they look like this.  Cool on a rack.

*  I wanted to mention..the after school kids had a blast yesterday.  They ate and danced and sang for hours.  They said it was the best Xmas party ever.  Yay!
