In a large mixing bowl, stir together

2 C tap water (hot to the touch)

1 package of quick rise yeast

1/4 C sugar

1/4 C honey
(You can substitute another 1/4 C sugar, if needed.)

1 tsp. salt

2/3 C vegetable oil (or butter flavored Crisco)


Gradually stir in flour until not sticky. (About 5 cups.)

Kneed dough on a floured surface and shape into a ball. Grease the inside of a large bowl with Crisco. Place dough inside. Grease the top of the dough with Crisco. Cover the dough and bowl with a dishcloth and set aside in a warm place to rise for about 1 1/2 hours.

After dough has risen, pick up the risen dough and turn it over in the bowl. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a large jelly role pan, or a few smaller cake pans, or loaf pans. Shape rolls and place on baking pans about 1/2 inch apart. Cover with a dishcloth and let rise for 30 more minutes. After rolls have risen, place in the oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes. Remove from oven when tops of rolls are light brown. Cool 5-10 minutes. Serve with butter, if desired.
