Add in another 2 cups of flour. Turn out onto a clean and floured countertop. Knead in more flour until no longer sticky (about ½ cup). Kneed for about 5 – 10 minutes.
  2. Wash bowl with hot water. (This makes it nice and warm and will help your dough rise faster.) Dry and spray with oil. Put dough in bowl and cover with a clean towel. Let set in a warm area until double in size (this may take a couple of hours depending on room temperature).

  10. Roll up from short side. Cut into 12 pieces and put into baking pan. Cover with towel and let rise for until nearly double (about half and hour). Preheat oven to 400°F.
