Dinner Rolls

These rolls are fast, and they make a small(ish) amount- 16 for me. Perfect!
And did I mention they are delicious?

1 1/2 cups warm water
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups all-purpose flour

In a large bowl, stir together warm water, yeast, and sugar. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes. To the yeast mixture, add the oil, salt, and 2 cups flour. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough has pulled away from the sides of the bowl. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Cover and let rise until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.

Deflate the dough, and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 14-16 equal pieces, and form into round balls. Place on lightly greased baking sheet. Let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake for 12-13 minutes, or until golden brown.
