Homemade Rolls and Cinnamon rolls

This is a very versatile recipe making hot dog rolls, hamburger rolls, sandwich rolls, sub rolls, dinner rolls and even cinnamon rolls.

1 1/4 cups skim milk

1/3 cup vegetable oil or 1/3 cup canola oil

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon salt

3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

2 1/4 teaspoons bread machine yeast

1 Place all ingredients in order recommended by your bread machine manufacturer.
2 Select dough cycle and start machine.
3 I preheat my oven to 100°F and turn off.
4 When dough cycle is complete remove from machine and proceed.
5 I roll into a long log and cut into 12 pieces for hot dog buns or 9 pieces for large hamburger buns.
6 How big you want them is up to you.
7 For Hot Dog Buns, I roll out till they look like long skinny wieners,.
8 Hamburger Buns, I flatten with my palm till about the thickness of a pancake. They rise beautifully and look as nicely shaped as store bought ones.
9 Put on parchment-lined baking sheet so sides are almost touching.
10 You can brush with melted butter if you wish but I never bother.
11 Cover with cloth and put in the warm oven for 45-60 minutes to rise.
