Mmmm Rolls

This is my first attempt at making any type of rolls or bread that requires yeast. These were quite easy to make and turned out very good. The kids gobbled them up and I will definately be making them again.

First I gathered all my ingredients....


Then I mixed up my dough and let it sit for about 6-8 hours in the fridge


Next I separated the dough, rolled into balls and placed in my greased muffin tin

I let them bake for a bit and look at how nice these rolls turned out. All that was needed was a little butter.

2 packages active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup warm milk
1/3 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp salt
4-5 cups all purpose flour

In a large bowl dissolve yeast in warm water and follow package directions for active yeast
Add milk, shortening, eggs, salt, 3 cups flour and sugar.
Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes, stir in enough remaining flour to fourm a soft dough.
Mixture will be sticky! Do not knead
Cover and refrigerate overnight (or all day as I did)
Punch down dough.
Turn onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 24 portions.
Divide each portion into 3 pieces, shape each into a ball
Place three balls in each greased muffin cup
Cover and let rise for about 1 hour 45 minutes
Bake at 350 for 13-15 minutes
Yeild: 2 dozen
