Gluten-Free Rolls

Being his mother's son, my boy loves bread.
He's been gluten-free for going on 5 years now.
We have pretty much given up trying to find
a ready-made gf bread that tastes like real food.
Without the gluten, it's not easy to make good tasting bread.
And as he can't have eggs (and lots of other things),
there's not much there to give elasticity to the flour we use.
This recipe was tweaked to allow for the omissions we must make.
It's the first time I've made breadsticks out of this dough.

The lil' guy loved it!

Fresh out of the oven...

Gluten-Free Rolls
2 1/2 C gluten-free flour mix
1 1/2 T sugar (or sucanat)
1/2 t salt
2 t yeast
1/2 C rice milk
1/4 C water
2 T unsalted butter (I use light olive oil for the lil' guy)

Place dry ingredients in medium bowl. 
Sift using wire whisk.  Set aside.

Place milk and water in glass measuring cup
and microwave for 30 seconds.
*Make sure temperature does not go over 120 degrees.*
Add oil to measuring cup.

Add wet to dry ingredients
and knead in bowl for 2-4 minutes.
Let rise in bowl for 30 minutes.
Divide into balls or breadsticks
and place on parchment covered cookie sheet.
Brush tops with butter (or light olive oil).
Let rise another 30 minutes.
Just before baking, sprinkle tops with sea salt.
Bake at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes,
until browned on top.
