Pepperoni Rolls

My daughter has been wanting some homemade pepperoni rolls for supper for awhile now, but it always seemed I never had enough of the supplies. Well , this time I was prepared. I made a batch of 2 dozen large rolls. The bread recipe is a favorite I have used for a long time. I am not sure where I got it from. It is Amish White Bread. Its makes very nice ,light fluffy bread.
Here is the dough at the end of the first raising:

I am not used to this blogging thing, so almost forgot to take a picture of them before they were all devoured. Here is a picture of two I have left:

They were stuffed with loads of pepperoni, and hot pepper cheese. You can see one stick of pepperoni falling out. Here is the recipe:
                                       Amish White Bread
2 cups of warm water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 pks active dry yeast
1 and 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup oil
5 to 6 cups of flour

First proof the yeast by mixing the yeast,warm water, and sugar and let set a few minutes to let mixture foam up. The add the remaining ingredients and mix. Start with 5 cups of flour, then add remaining cup as needed to prevent it from being sticky. I like to use my stand mixer to knead, but it can also be done by hand. If kneading by hand, do so for about 10 minutes, slightly less by mixer. Then oil dough, cover and set in warm place to raise till doubled.Then pan out into desired shape (for loafs or rolls) and let raise again. Then bake at 350° for about 25 minutes.
