    Bobbie's Note:

    My wonderful grandmother made the best bread and rolls. She'd have a batch waiting when we got home from school. This is as close to her recipe as I could get (Gram didn't measure her ingredients). I usually make these into crescent shapes -- but you can shape them however you want. Cooking time includes the time to let the dough raise.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    rolls

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Dissolve yeast and 2 teaspoons sugar in warm water and let rise – be sure to use large enough container.
    2. 2
      Add remaining sugar, shortening and salt to scalded milk and stir to dissolve.*.
    3. 3
      Add flour until it falls off in sheets. At this point, add the 2 eggs and yeast. Mix well and begin adding additional flour until dough reaches desired consistency. Knead a few minutes.
    4. 4
      Lightly spray a bowl with cooking spray. Place dough in bowl, turn so the top has some of the spray on it, and let it rise until doubled.
    5. 5
      Shape into rolls of your choice and let rise again. (Lightly grease your baking pans or sheet).
    6. 6
      Bake in 400 degree oven for approximately 10 minutes.
    7. 7
      *Note: At this point, I put this mixture in my mixer and finish it off in it.
    8. 8
      The number of rolls will depend on what shape you make them. I usually get 16 crescent rolls.

      Like the other reviewer, I decided to use butter instead of shortening and less flour. I actually microwaved the butter with the milk until it boiled. I don't have a mixer and I'm not exactly sure what it means to have flour falling off in sheets. I pretty much just put the 4 cups in the bowl - which made it hard to mix in the eggs and yeast. (I should have known better!) I made 14 balls which turned into some really yummy rolls! Thanks so much for posting!

      Made these with butter rather than shortening and a little more like 4 2/3 cups flour. Started dinner with 16 rolls, none left by the end. Very easy to make, absolutely superb.
