Golden Dinner Rolls

"'THE RECIPE came from my grandmother on my father's side. This is an unbelievably easy way to make rolls. It takes some time to make them, naturally, but they're certainly worth it! This recipe makes delicious bread, too.'"

  1. Soften yeast in warm water. Place sugar and salt in large mixing bowl. Set aside. Heat and stir milk and shortening until shortening melts (120 degrees F-130 degrees F). Add to mixing bowl along with eggs and yeast mixture. Stir in 1 cup of flour at a time to form a soft dough that can be kneaded. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic. Place in a large greased bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Shape into desired rolls or loaves. Place on greased baking sheets or in bread pans. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake rolls at 375 degrees F for 15-18 minutes or until golden. Bake loaves at 375 degrees F for about 30 minutes or until bread tests done. Remove from pans and cool on wire racks.

These turned out great.My family Loved them. And I saved the left overs and they reheated very nicely.

These rolls were very good, the texture was very light and fluffy. I halved the recipe, used butter instead of shortening and increased the salt. Next time a tad more salt to suit our tastes.

Good rolls. I cut the recipe in half and it made 9 large dinner rolls. I also used country crock instead of shortening and they came out really good. The dough is very wet- I used almost another...
