No-Knead Dinner Rolls

But you will need a food processor. Total time should be 2 hours: from pantry to hot from the oven. Makes about 12 rolls.

Fluffy and tender but substantial, convenient and easy but completely made from scratch, impressive to guests but the nine-year old next door could do it while watching cartoons.

1 Cup whole wheat flour
2 1/2 Cups bread flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoon rapid rise (bread machine) yeast
roughly 1 to 2 Cups lukewarm water

1. Add dry ingredients to food processor.
2. Turn it on. Through the feed tube pour water in a slow stream until all the flour has gathered into a moist ball of dough wadding around the blade. If the dough sticks to the side of the food processor, add a teaspoon of bread flour at a time to dry it out a little.
3. Dump dough into a bowl, cover with a damp towel, and leave in the warmest, most humid place you can find for an hour.
4. Line a baking sheet or two with parchment paper.
5. Pull half-fist sized pieces of dough from the ball, roll them into a sphere, and space them an inch apart on the baking sheet. When you finish, cover the dough balls with a damp towel. Let them rise until the oven is hot.
6. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. When it hits 400 degrees, stick the baking sheet in and turn the heat down to 375 degrees. Bake 18-22 minutes, until gently browned.

Wrap the fresh hot rolls in a clean dry towel in a basket. Serve with budder, zham, or hunny.
