  • 1/4 c white sugar

  3. Add the yeast mixture and continue to mix in remaining 2 cups of flour until a soft dough forms
  4. Knead for 5 minutes
  5. Let rise until doubled (at least 1 hour)
  6. Divide and shape dough to desired roll type
  7. Place on greased baking sheet and let rise another 30 minutes to an hour.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown
