Grandma's Homemade rolls

Posted in by blkris | Edit
This is my Grandma's recipe for homemade rolls.  My Mom makes these every year for Thanksgiving.  They are delicious and addicting!!

Mix together and let bubble 5 minutes or so:
2 Pkg yeast (a little under 2 Tbs.)
1/2 C. warm water

Melt together but make sure it is only luke warm when mixing anything else to it:
1 1/2 C. Milk
1/2 C. shortening (I used salted butter bc I never have shortening on hand)

Add to milk/shortening mixture above:
1/2 C. sugar
3 tsp. salt (If using salted butter in place of shortening, decrease your salt here but about 1/4 to 1/2 tsp)

Add 3 C. flour to above mixture and mix until cool enough to add 3 beaten eggs.
Add 1 C. flour and your yeast mixture.
Keep adding flour until you have a sticky dough.  DO NOT add too much flour.
Let raise until double with towel on top.

Roll out dough and use a cup to cut out circles.  Melt 1/2 stick of butter and dip the inside of the roll in the butter, and fold it on top of itself so you now have a half circle on your lightly greased cookie sheet.    You can put all the rolls next to each other and do not have to skip space.  Let raise with towel on top until double in size.

Cook at 350 for 8-10 minutes and golden brown on top.  Rub butter on top of rolls (optional).  Enjoy!!
