This was my Mom's recipe and we ate a lot of it when I was growing up. You can use this dough for just about anything. We even like it as a pizza crust. Cooking time is just a guess, I always go by the thumping method on bread loaves. Makes 1 doz nuclear rolls or 2 loaves of bread

  1. Dissolve the yeast in the 3/4 cup warm water with the 1 tsp sugar added.

  5. Put on floured board and knead until smooth and elastic.
  6. Place in greased bowl, and make sure the top of the dough gets oiled, cover, and let rise.
