Servings 16


  • 2 Tbl. active dry yeast
  • 1 cup plus 2 Tbl. warm water 110-115 degrees
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 - 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • sesame or poppy seeds for topping optional


  • In a large bowl dissolve yeast in warm water. Whisk in vegetable oil and sugar. Allow to rest for 5-minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Add the egg, salt and enough flour to form a soft dough (I used about 3 1/4 cups).
  • Turn out onto a well floured surface and knead for 3-5 minutes until smooth and elastic. Divide into 2 balls; then cut each into 8 smaller balls. Do not allow to rise. Place 3-inches apart on parchment lined baking sheets, cover and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Sprinkle tops with sesame or poppy seeds, optional.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.
