The Best Rolls Ever

I received this treasured recipe from a good friend years ago.  I have to say that these rolls are fabulous! They are so light & airy in texture.   You can even roll out the dough, butter it up, sprinkle with sugar & cinnamon , roll up & slice for wonderful cinnamon rolls.  Here's the recipe:

1 1/4 cups warm water
1 T. yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1 t. salt
1/3 cup oil
3-4 cups flour

Put all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix.  I use my Kitchen Aid, but you can easily do this by hand.  Add the flour, starting with 3 cups.  I usually use about 3 1/2 cups of flour.  Cover the bowl & refrigerate for 1 day or up to 1 week.

Take the dough out of the refrigerator 2 hours before you need it.  Shape the dough into balls.  I usually get around 18-20 rolls.  I roll the balls into a little flour before shaping them because the dough is rather sticky.   I put them into a greased 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Cover & let rise until doubled in size.

Uncover & bake the rolls in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Note:  You can skip the refrigerator rising & just let the dough rise until doubled, punch down & then shape & let rise again until doubled.
