2 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. salt
2 1/4 tsps. active dry yeast (or one 1/4 oz. packet)
1 tbsp. sugar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (organic if you can find it)
1 cup warm water
Yields: 8 Rolls
Step 1 - Combine your dry ingredients in your mixer with the dough hook attachment. Then run on low speed for a minutes to evenly disperse them.
Step 2 - Run on low speed, then add the olive oil and water until dough comes together (if yours is still to dry then add one tablespoon of water at a time until the consistency changes). Then line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly spray with canola oil.
Step 3 - Divide the dough into 8 equal parts then roll each portion in your hands. Then place on a baking sheet. Make two cuts in the center of each roll with a clean pair of kitchen scissors.Step 4 - Lightly spray each roll with canola oil, then cover with plastic wrap and a kitchen towel until doubled in size (about 1-1.5 hours). Preheat your oven to 425 degrees, then remove the plastic wrap and towel. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy!
