I am really getting into this whole bread thing and no longer find it quite as intimidating. So today I made my own yeast rolls.
In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, egg, oil, salt and 4 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top.
Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down; turn onto a lightly floured surface.
Divide into four portions.
Shape each portion into 12 balls.
To form knots, roll each ball into an 8-in. rope;
tie into a knot.
Tuck ends under.
Place rolls 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
