Directions:
Add yeast to c. warm water with tsp. sugar. Wait 5 min. add rest of warm water, oil, flour and salt. Knead 10 min, adding flour until not sticky. Cover and let rise 1 hour in warm oven (preheat to 150 then turn off before putting dough in). (I used my normal bread technique and it worked fine- of flour, yeast, salt, and water. Mix well, slowly add oil and rest of flour)

Roll into long cylinder and cut into 12 sections, making a ball out of each. Let stand 5 min. under a kitchen towel. Roll each until 6 inches in diameter. Place on floured, wax paper, rest 20 min. Transfer to ungreased cookie sheet and bake about 5 inches from the bottom of the oven at 500 for 4 minutes, then turn and bake 1-4 min. longer. Do not let brown. Remove and cool by stacking on top of stove and cover with a towel. When cool you can refrigerate in a plastic bag, or freeze. When ready to use, cut in half, separate, and fill.
