This was my moms roll recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Scald milk, when milk is hot add sugar, shortening and salt (First 4 ingredients). Stir ingredients until they have fully dissolved. Then let cool.
  2. While milk is cooling take a medium size bowl place the yeast, sugar and warm water (Next 3 ingredients). Set aside and let foam, this will take about 20 minutes.
  3. Beat the eggs and set aside.
  4. When milk mixture has cooled so that it doesn’t feel hot, add some flour (about 2 cups to start). Then add the eggs. Next add the yeast and more flour enough to make a soft dough – when the dough is no longer sticky that is enough flour.
  5. Let the dough set for about 10 minutes then knead a few times, then grease the top. Place clean towel over the bowl letting the dough rise until doubled in size –this will take about 45 to 50 minutes.
  6. Mix down again and let rise again but not double –about 15 minutes.
  7. Punch down and make into rolls.
  8. Bake at 400 degrees for 14 or so min depending on roll size this makes about 15-20 rolls.
  9. Bake rolls until golden brown.
