1/2 Cup Water
1/4 Cup melted butter or oil
4 1/2 Cups flour ( I use a blend of all purpose and whole wheat)
2 1/4 tsp yeast (1 envelope)
2 TBSP Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Salt
1. In Kitchen-Aid mixer combine flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Mix to combine. While mixer is going, add liquid ingredients. Knead for 8-10 minutes.
2. Grease dough and let rest for 30 minutes.
3. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Shape into smooth balls, flatten and place on a greased baking sheet. FOR HOT DOGS: divide dough into 16 pieces and shape into hot dog shaped rolls. Start with a hot dog size and it will raise to the perfect size for the hot dog.
Bake at 400 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
