Dinner Rolls or Cinnamon Rolls

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

2 packages (1 ounce each) dry yeast
1/2 cup lukewarm water
2 cups lukewarm milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup shortening
7 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter
Cinnamon rolls:
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar

Instructions

Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water. Mix milk, sugar and salt together. Add the softened yeast, eggs, shortening and all but a cup of the flour. Turn out on floured board. Let rest 5 minutes. Knead 10 minutes keeping dough as soft as possible, almost sticky, just so you are able to handle. Place in a greased bowl. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise again 30 to 45 minutes. To make crescent dinner rolls, divide dough in 3 parts. Roll out each part to a 12 inch circle. Butter circle with melted butter. Cut into 12 or 16 wedges, like a pizza. Roll each triangle from the widest end to the smallest. Place rolls on a greased pan. Let rise 1 hour, then bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. For cinnamon rolls, roll dough to a 9x18-inch rectangle. Spread melted butter, 2 tablespoons cinnamon and 1/2 cup sugar on top. Roll it up and pinch to seal. Cut into 12 slices. Let rise in pan 1 hour and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
