In Mexico, you'd go to a bakery to get these flavourful rolls. Now you can make your own!
Combine 2 cups flour, undissolved yeast and salt in a large bowl. Heat water, honey and butter until very warm (120°F to 130°F). Gradually add to dry ingredients. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer; scraping bowl occasionally. Increase speed to high and beat 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic; about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover and let rest 10 minutes. Divide dough into 10 equal portions on floured counter. Roll each portion into a 5-1/2-inch long and 2-inch wide ovals, taper ends of each roll to resemble a football. Place on greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise about 30 to 40 minutes until doubled. Combine water and corn starch in saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir constantly until thickened and translucent. Brush each roll with cornstarch mixture. Slash each roll, about 1/2-inch deep, with sharp knife length wise; stopping 1/2-inch from each end. Bake in preheated oven at 375°F for 25 to 30 minutes; until rolls are brown and hollow when tapped. Remove from baking sheet and cool on wire rack. Use Bolillo Rolls to make tasty Mexican sandwiches.
