2 pkgs yeast
1 egg, beaten
2 tsp salt
1/2 c sugar
2 c warm water
1/4 c cooking oil
6 1/2 cups flour

Directions:
Mix yeast and sugar into the warm water until yeast is well moistened. Add the egg and mix well. Add dry ingredients using only 5 cups of flour to begin with. Keep adding flour, 1/2 cup at a time until all is used. Mix well. Turn dough onto a lighted floured surface and knead until the dough is smooth and elastic. Put dough back into the bowl and cover with a clean dish towel. Let it rise until doubled in bulk. Then form the dough into rolls. I usually divide the entire amount of dough into four pieces, then make 8-12 rolls out of each piece. Space them out in your 9 x 13 baking pans (this is enough for 2 pans) and cover, let rise until they have tripled in bulk. Bake at 400 until lightly browned. Immediately rub the tops of the rolls with butter or margarine and allow to cool slightly before serving.

Personal Notes:
Kneading dough is very therapeutic. Make rolls when the kitchen is warm! If it is cool, turn the oven on to 350 for just a few minutes, then turn it off and set your bowl inside the oven to let the dough rise. It acts like a proofing cabinet!

This recipe can easily be halved to make one pan of roll. You can make parker house rolls by using your muffin tins (greased) and putting 3 smaller balls of dough in each. Or you can increase the sugar in the dough to 3/4 cup and use the dough to make cinnamon rolls.
