3/4 c. warm water (approx. 110 degrees)
3 packages Rapid Rise or 2 T. yeast
1/2 tsp. sugar
1/2 c. oil
3/4 c. sugar
3 eggs
1 c. water
5 heaping c. flour
2 tsp. salt
butter, melted

In a small bowl combine the yeast, 3/4 c. warm water and 1/2 tsp. sugar. Set aside. In a large bowl mix the oil, 1 c. water and sugar together. Beat the eggs and add to the bowl. Add foamy yeast mixture. Mix in flour and salt with liquid ingredients to form a sticky dough. Cover and place in a warm, draft-free place. Let rise for 1 hour. Then stir down dough, cover and refrigerate overnight (up to 36 hours) Dough can be rolled out after rising 1 hour, but is better if refrigerated.. Divide dough into 2 equal parts. Roll out each dough part into a large thin circle. Cut circle as you would a pizza, with pizza cutter, making 16 wedge-shaped slices. Roll each slice starting at the wide end and rolling up to the point. Place seam side down on a large, greased bun pan (11 1/2" x 16 1/2"). Roll out the second dough part the same as the first. All 32 rolls should fit on one large bun pan. Let rise 3 hours. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and brush rolls with melted butter.

Pull Aparts Variation:
Use 1/2 of the above recipe. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Dip in melted butter, roll in cinnamon, and place balls in a greased bundt pan, two layers deep. Let rise 1 hour. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes.

Cinnamon Roll Variation:
Use 1/2 of the above recipe. Roll out dough 1/4" thick. Spread with butter and sprinkle with 2 1/2 handfuls sugar, 6 handfuls brown sugar, and cinnamon. Roll up dough and cut into 3/4" slices. Let rise 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
