Add about 1/2 cup flour at a time and mix again until dough is soft, not overly sticky, and not stiff. (It is not necessary to use the entire amount of flour. Kneed dough till smooth on floured surface.
Scrape dough off sides of bowl and spray bowl with oil.
Place dough in bowl and let rise till triple size - 2 hours or so.
Sprinkle counter with flour and place dough on floured surface. Roll out and cut rolls in desired shape and size. Place on greased pans.
Spread some melted butter generously on rolls; Let rise in warm place until rolls are double in size (about 1 to 1 ½ hours). Bake at 375 for 15 to 20 minutes or until browned.
This recipe is similar to The Lion House's rolls, Very Good!
I use this dough for cinnamon rolls, orange rolls, bread bowls, dinner rolls, and scones.
