Excellent rolls which are very easy to make. Made the dough (starter) the night before so it was ready to be made into rolls in the morning. Thanks Heather -- this is a definite keeper.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut shortening into flour until mixture is crumbly with pea-sized crumbs.
  2. Mix together yeast, sugar, salt, and lukewarm water in a large mixing bowl until dissolved; let sit 5-10 minutes or until frothy (if it doesn't froth, then your yeast is dead- either water was too hot or your yeast too old- start over with fresh yeast).
  3. Gradually mix together yeast mixture and flour mixture- adding enough flour to make a soft dough (you may need to add extra flour depending upon the humidity the day you make the dough).
  4. Cover dough and let chill 8 hours.
  5. Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic- just a few minutes.
  6. Form into 24 small dough balls and set balls together in a greased 9x13" metal pan.
  7. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk (probably at least 1 hour).
  8. Bake in a preheated oven at 450 F for 12-15 minutes or until golden.
  9. Brush with melted butter.
