Dinner Rolls

Comment on this recipe

"My mom was a great baker who baked and sold cakes and rolls and such. She got this recipe from a Gold Medal cookbook 50 some years ago."

Ingredients

2 packages yeast (dissolve in 1/4 cup warm water)
2 cups milk, scalded and cooled
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 eggs, well beaten
1/2 cup shortening, melted ("I use margarine.")
7 to 7-1/2 cups flour

Instructions

Mix in order given. Let rest, covered, for 10 minutes. Knead dough until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.

Put in greased bowl, cover and let rise. Punch down. Make into whatever shape rolls you want. Cover with old dish towel and let rise until double.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.

Note: "I always roll out half of it and spread butter on it and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon and roll up. Cut with a piece of thread and lay slices in a greased pan. Let rise until double and bake. Turn out on rack to cool and frost with powdered sugar icing for great tasting cinnamon rolls."
