DIRECTIONS

  • In a mixing bowl, stir in yeast and 1 cup of warm water until the yeast dissolves. Add the other cup of water.
  • Add shortning, sugar and salt. Stir vigorously and mash the lumps of shortning against the side of the bowl as you sift in the flour one cup at a time.
  • Stir until the dough is firm.
  • Smooth down and cover with cloth or lid - let rise until double in size ( about 1-1/2-2 hours). DO NOT GET TOO WARM OR SIT ON A HOT STOVE TOP.(I turn my oven on 250 for ONE minute, then turn it OFF -- and let them rise in the warm oven).
  • When dough has doubled dump out onto a floured board or coutertop, knead lightly until you can cut or pinch into rolls.
  • Place in a greased pan and let rise again, approximately 1-1/2 - 2 hours. Cook until browned, brush with butter and eat.
