Thelma is my grandma Sorensen and this is her roll recipe (who knows where she got it, but that's where I got it!). I make it in a Bosch mixer and always double it because it seems to mix better that way. This is one of my favorite foods of all time!
2 packages dry active yeast (about 2 low tablespoons)
1/2 Cup Sugar
2 tsp Salt
5-1/4 C Flour (approximately)
1-1/2 Cups Warm Water (about 130 degrees)
1/4 Cup Oil
Mix half of the flour with the other dry ingredients. Add the water and mix. Add eggs and oil and mix. Add remaining flour until the dough reaches a good dough consistency. Let rise in a greased, covered bowl (between 1 and 2 hours). Form into rolls and place on greased cookie sheets. Cover with a towel and let rise again between 1 and 2 hours. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Yield approximately 15-20 rolls.
