1 cup lukewarm milk
1â�„4 tsp. salt
2 TBS sugar
1 package yeast
2 TBS vegetable oil, plus more as needed
3 cups plain flour, plus extra for dusting
Stir together the milk, salt and sugar until dissolved; add yeast. Let stand for about 10 minutes. Add the egg, vegetable oil and 2 cups of the flour. Mix with a wooden spoon until smooth. Add the remaining flour and beat until very smooth. Top with a little oil, scrape the wooden spoon and sides of the bowl with a spatula. Turn dough in the bowl; let rise for 30 minutes.
Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead 5-6 times. Roll out to 1â�„2-inch thickness and cut into 2-inch rolls. Put rolls on a lightly oiled cookie sheet and put in a cold oven. Heat the oven to 350 degrees and bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush with cooking oil.
Makes 16 rolls.
