Yeast Roll Recipe

This is our yeast roll recipe that my Mom has made for years. I make them now for all of our holiday dinners. They are so easy and you make them up the day before and put in the refrigerator over night.

1 package dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1 cup milk, scalded
1/2 cup shortening ( butter)
1/2 cup sugar
4 1/2 cups Flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 eggs, slightly beaten and room temperture

Prepare yeast by adding to water until it starts to work.
Heat milk and add sugar, butter, salt
cool to about baby bottle temperature
Add eggs, yeast, flour (1 cup at a time)
Mix completely and cover. Let rise until double, punch down and put in refrigerator overnight.
Three or four hours before you are ready to bake, take the dough out, add just enough flour so you can handle it.
Pinch out and place in greased pan, put 1/2 pat of butter on each one and let raise until doubled. (Usually 3 to 4 hours)
Sometimes I turn the oven on for 1 minute, turn it off and set the rolls in the oven. I especially do this when it is cold outside or I am in a hurry for them to rise.
Bake at 400 for about 15 minutes

I am sorry, but I won't have my sale up until Monday morning.
We have had out of state company who arrived Thursday night and left this evening.
Please check back in the morning for my weekly sales. I appreciate you stopping
by this evening so very much!
