Soft Yogurt Sandwich Rolls

I got this recipe from when searching for ways to use my less than desirable yogurt. I really liked the way these rolls turned out and easily substituted half of the flour with whole-wheat flour.

Thanks to Taylor for providing the picture!

Makes 10 rolls

3 1/2 - 4/12 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon active dry yeast
3 Tablespoons honey
1 cup water, warm (100-110F)
1 cup plain yogurt
1 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine 1/2 cup flour, active dry yeast, honey, and warm water. Stir well and let sit for 10 minutes, until slightly foamy.
2. Stir in yogurt, vegetable oil, salt and 2 cups of the remaining flour. Gradually stir in more flour until you have a soft dough that sticks together and pulls away from the sides of the bowl. (I do this in my kitchen aid).
3. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes; or if using a stand mixer continue to knead for just a few minutes; add additional flour if needed, until dough is smooth and elastic.
4. Place dough into a lightly greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
5. Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet.
6. Turn risen dough out of bowl and onto a lightly floured surface. Gently deflate, pressing into a rectangle. Divide dough into 10 even pieces with a board scraper or a pizza cutter.
7. Shape each piece into a round roll. To do this, take all the corners of one of the squarish pieces you just cut and pull them together, pinching them to create a seal. This will pull the rest of the dough tight across the top of your roll, giving you a smooth top. Place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough.
8. Once all rolls have been formed, press down firmly on each one to flatten. Cover with a clean dish towel or greased plastic wrap and let rise for 25 minutes.
9. Bake for about 20 minutes, until rolls are deep golden on the top and the bottom.
10. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.
