On Monday was my day off, so I decided to bake some mini rolls.
There is no better way to start a day off than with fresh mini rolls that just came out of the oven.
The dough is very easy to work with, you can make a verity of foods such as; pizza, focaccia and challa rolls all with the dough.
7 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3 Tablespoon dry yeast
3 Tablespoon sugar
1 Teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoon olive oil
3 Cups warm water
1 egg beaten + 1 tablespoon oil
In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, yeast, olive oil and the salt together, add the water and beat until the dough is smooth and elastic about 8 - 10 minutes.
place in a greased bowl, cover with clean kitchen towel.
let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
punch dough down, turn onto a lightly floured surface, divide dough into equal balls.
shape each piece into a small ball, pulling edges under to smooth top.
place the balls in a greased baking pan.
brush over balls with the beaten egg, sprinkle sesame seeds and bake at 350 F. for 25-30 min. or until golden brown.
