  5. Gradually beat in 2 cups of flour.
  6. Scrape beater and add the rest of flour by hand, mixing well.

  8. Knead gently on a floured counter-top or floured board.
  9. Roll to 1 inch thickness.
  10. Cut with floured 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter.
  11. Roll edges lightly in oil so that the baked rolls will seperate readily.

  14. Makes about 15 rolls.

I needed to bring hamburger buns to a Girl Scout campout, a long time ago and so I decided to make some. Put couldn't find a recipe back in those days, so used this recipe and made them in little tart pans. They were the first to be used that day and I have made them again and again. Also I do make regular rolls out of this great recipe.
