THE BEST ROLLS OR PIZZA CRUST I'VE EVER TASTED

makes 18 rolls or one 9X13 pizza crust

1 tablespoon yeast in 1/2 cup warm water

2 cups whole wheat flour 2 cups white flour

1/4 cup powdered milk 1 tablespoon salt

1/4 cup vegetable oil 1/4 cup honey

1 cup warm water

Combine yeast and 1/2 cup warm water. Set aside until bubbly. In large mixing
bowl combine flours, powdered milk, and salt. Mix well. Add 1 cup warm water,
yeast mixture, oil, and honey. Mix well with large spoon. Knead mixture, adding
more white flour as necessary to form smooth, elastic dough. Oil mixing bowl,
return dough to bowl and turn once to coat top and bottom. Cover and let rise in
warm place for 25 to 30 minutes. Punch down and shape into round rolls. Grease
pie tins with shortening and place rolls in pie tins. Let rise until double in
bulk. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, rotate pans for even browning and bake
10 minutes more.



WHOLE WHEAT BREADSTICKS

Prepare dough from any one loaf whole wheat recipe. Grease baking sheets and
sprinkle with cornmeal. Divide dough into 12 - 16 equal pieces. Roll dough with
hands into ropes 8 - 12 inches long. Beat one egg slightly. Brush each
rope/breadstick with egg mixture and roll in poppy seeds, celery seeds, sesame
seeds, or sprinkle with coarse salt. Place sticks on prepared baking sheets and
bake at 350 degrees until light brown and crispy. For softer breadsticks divide
dough into twelve pieces and roll to 8 inches long.
