  1. In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, shortening, sugar, eggs, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  2. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Divide into eight pieces; shape each into a ball. Grease two baking sheets and sprinkle with cornmeal. Place four balls 3 in. apart on each prepared pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
  3. For bread bowls, cut a thin slice off the top of bread. Hollow out bottom half, leaving a 1/4-in. shell (discard removed bread or save for another use). Fill with chili, chowder or stew.

This was a great recipe. I made them to go along with chili. I doubled the recipe and ended up making 12 bowls...they were a good size. My only suggestion is to bake them for an additional 10...

These received rave reviews and requests that I make them again SOON. I was a bit concerned once I realized how sweet the dough was (made for chili) but it really tasted good together. I halve...

Delicious, wonderful bread. I only used half the sugar thanks to other reviewers. It's been years since I made homemade bread and I'd forgotten how good it is warm right out of the oven. My...

We really enjoyed these bread bowls but I thought that the outside should be a crispy instead of soft. I brushed the outside with egg white and reduced the sugar to 1/4 c. The flavor was great...

This was really easy and simple to make. I took jms250's advice below and warmed my oven to 100 degrees, turned it off and let the bread rise in the oven. They held together nicely, were sweet...

This is a wonderful recipe. I did change a few things, I changed the recipe to 4 servings and I used my bread machine set on the dough cycle. I used 1 cup of warm milk and no water and had to ...

I have made this recipe 3 times now and each time they have been fabulous. I made 5 out of the full batch the first time and they were too big. Then I made one large out of half the recipe for...

I have never made bread before. How easy is this?! They were wonderful!! I was the hit of the ladies group when I served Cheese, Borccoli & Chicken Soup (from this site) in these individual brea...
