    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8

    Yield:

    rolls

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large bowl, mix warm water, yeast, sugar, and honey. Let stand until foamy, 5-10 minutes.
    2. 2
      To the yeast mixture, add olive oil, salt, and 2 cups flour. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough holds together.
    3. 3
      Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. (Dough will be loose and sticky, but not too sticky).
    4. 4
      Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl, and turn to coat. Cover with a damp cloth, and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
    5. 5
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
    6. 6
      Deflate the dough, and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 16 equal pieces, (I cut it like a pizza, halved then quartered and so on, so they all come out equal) and form into round balls. Place on lightly greased baking sheets at least 2 inches apart. Cover the rolls with a damp cloth, and let rise until doubled again, about 40 minutes.
    7. 7
      Brush the tops with egg white. (Feel free to use your fingers, just don't press too hard).
    8. 8
      Bake 10-12 minute until golden.

      The whole family agreed that I should make these again. I cannot believe how light and airy they are. I brushed the tops with egg white before baking and sprinkled them with Everything Topping- Bagels, Rolls, Bread Everything Topping- Bagels, Rolls, Bread. The one thing I wanted to mention is that the list of ingredients does not mention sugar as referenced in the instructions. I added 1 tsp as I thought the honey would sweeten the dough enough. This is a keeper of a recipe, thank you for sharing it. Made for PAC Spring 2011.

      I rarely write recipe reviews, but I felt compelled to this time. These rolls are amazing! They remind me of the most expensive rolls at the store. I've made them three times so far, and I may not go back to any other recipe.
      On step one, you did mention sugar as noted in the review above, but I crossed it out. The 2 tbsp. of honey was sufficient. I think honey was a great choice of sweeteners.
      The last time I made these, I didn't have an egg, so I brushed cold water on the rolls rather than using egg white. It gave the rolls a soft crust, more like an American-style roll than a French roll. Just another way to go with it.
      Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
