4 to 4.25 cups bread flour
3 tblsp. sugar
2 pckg. active dry yeast
2 tsp. salt
1.5 cups warm water (110-115 degrees F.)
1 egg, beaten
Add water; beat at low speed on electric mixer about 30 seconds or just until blended.
Beat at high speed for 3 minutes, scraping bowl often. Gradually add enough remaining bread flour to make a moderately stiff dough.
Knead on lightly floured surface 10 to 12 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Shape to form ball. Place in greased medium size bowl, turning once to coat surface of dough. Cover; let rise 1 hour (dough will not double in size).
Punch dough down; let rest 15 minutes.
Divide into 12 equal portions. Shape each portion into a 2 to 2.5 inch ball. With end of wooden spoon, punch a hole through center of each ball. Gently enlarge hole to1 to 1.5 in. in diameter, forming dough into a ring.
