  1. Proof yeast in water. Do this by sprinkling yeast into water and let it soak 5 minutes. Mix to ensure proper yeast growth.
  2. Add sugar, oil, and salt to yeast.
  3. Stir in 3 cups flour; add flour as you mix with your hands. Stop adding flour when dough is not sticky  to the touch.
  4. Cover bowl with a dish cloth and let rise 10-20 minutes. If it rises longer, no problem. It will just be fluffier.

  7. Break off roll size dough pieces and roll in butter and then sugar mixture.
