4. Add the rest of the flour CUP BY CUP, fully incorporating after each cupful, until it forms a smooth but slightly tacky ball of dough.
5. Let it raise until it doubles in size.
6. While dough rises, grease 2 muffin tins, 4 if you have them.
7. Once it has doubled in size, punch it down.
8. Take a piece of the dough big enough to form a ball that fits in one of the muffin cups.
9. Take that piece of dough and divide it into 2 or 3 smaller balls and place in the same muffin cup.
10. Repeat until the dough is gone.
11. Bake at 400 degrees until golden brown (about 10-15 minutes).

If you wish to make a roll that can be used for small sandwiches, you can skip dividing the dough into 2-3 smaller balls (step 9) and just place the one ball into the muffin cup.
