  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

  1. Preheat oven to 200°. Combine yeast and 1 cup warm water in a 1-cup liquid measuring cup; let mixture stand 5 minutes.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, and salt in a heavy-duty mixing bowl. Add yeast mixture and oil. Beat at low speed with an electric mixer 1 minute; beat at medium speed 5 minutes.
  3. Divide dough into 20 equal portions. Shape each portion into a 7-inch rope, and shape into a knot. Combine egg yolk and 1 tablespoon water; brush over rolls.
