Easy French Rolls

Our family likes to eat a great variety of foods. There is always something at the dinner table that one person might not like, but the one weakness we all have is bread. Hot rolls for dinner are the best. 
 Since variety is the spice of life, this is our spice for this week. 
 are made from a variation of this great old recipe of Winnifred Jardine, 
a past Food Editor for the Deseret News. 
 I don’t really know if you can botch this recipe.


2 tbsp SAF yeast
2 1/2 cups hot water
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp salt
5 tbsp vegetable oil
6 cups flour
1 egg white
In mixer bowl, mix 4 cups flour, sugar, salt and yeast. Add hot water (I get it as hot as my tap will get) and oil.  Mix until smooth.  Scrape sides.  Stir in remaining flour and mix well.

Leave in mixing bowl, let rest 10 minutes. Turn mixer on to stir down dough, about 30 seconds.  Let rest again for 10 minutes, repeat 3 more times. Turn out dough onto floured board.  Knead once or twice until lightly coated with flour.  Divide dough in half and from each half, cut into 12 equal pieces.  
Form each piece into a ball and place on grease baking sheet.  Let raise 30 minutes.  
Brush with beaten egg white and gash across top with sharp knife.
It can also be formed into 2 loaves and cut 3 gashes diagonally.
Bake in 400 degree oven for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve hot with butter and your favorite home made jam. Ours is raspberry.
This recipe can also be made even if you don’t have a mixer.  Just stir vigorously with a large
 spoon leaving the spoon in the dough during rest and stir vigorously to stir down dough. 
For fun variations after brushing with egg white sprinkle with sesame seeds or poppy seeds.
