Step 5: Shape into Rolls

Picture of Shape into Rolls
You will be making 24 rolls.
Split dough in half and then again so you have 4 even sections of dough.
Divide each of those in half again and then divide into 3 even balls.

To Shape Rolls: (see link below for a video how to)
Take a section of the roll in your hand.
Make a circle with your thumb and fingers that is smaller than the dough.
Hold the dough in the circle your hand creates.
Using your other hand push gently on the backside of the roll (inside your hand.)
Keep pushing gently while your other hand stays in a circle and smooths the outside of the roll.
Continue until the roll is smooth and shaped into a ball.

I can not figure out how to embed a video on how to shape the rolls.  I posted a video Shaping Rolls on YouTube on how I shape my rolls.

OMG! These are the best! I have a huge family, so these will deffinately be brought to the next gathering. I also use this for Sugar Free Cinnamon Rolls! I rolled out each piece (instead of shaping into balls) Added filling (eyeball it so it is thin and speaded from end to end) then roll from one end to the other. Filling: 1 cup Splenda, 5 tsp cinnamon and 1 cup butter (2 sticks softened in the microwave for 20 secs) I also added 3/4 cup of Peacans (toasted them on top of the stove for a few minutes) and stirred everything to gether. I baked these same temp for 15 minutes. My kids loved them. YUM!
