    larchie's Note:

    Another one of mom's famous recipes - I believe this one comes from my grandmother - and a staple at our house for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Really good rolls.

    Serves: 6



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Use a large bowl or dutch oven when you mix the ingredients, because the dough must have room to rise.
    2. 2
      Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm water. Set aside. Cream shortening, sugar and salt. Pour boiling water over the shortening mixture and stir until dissolved.
    3. 3
      Beat the eggs and add them to the creamed mixture. Add the yeast and water. Stir.
    4. 4
      Add the flour two cups at a time, stirring after each addition. Cover with plastic wrap and put a plate on top. Put in the refrigerator overnight.
    5. 5
      Oil hands and baking dishes. Pinch off a small amount of dough. Flatten it in the palm of your hand. Dip it in the melted butter, then fold it over to form a pocketbook. Put in oiled pans, leaving some room to rise.
    6. 6
      Cover the pans and let rise in a warm place for several hours. I put them in the oven on Warm. When they are ready, bake at 400 degrees until brown (10-15 minutes).
