Yeast Rolls

Recipe by Bobbie
READY IN: 2hrs
YIELD: 16 rolls




  • Dissolve yeast and 2 teaspoons sugar in warm water and let rise – be sure to use large enough container.
  • Add remaining sugar, shortening and salt to scalded milk and stir to dissolve.*.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Shape into rolls of your choice and let rise again. (Lightly grease your baking pans or sheet).
  • Bake in 400 degree oven for approximately 10 minutes.
  • *Note: At this point, I put this mixture in my mixer and finish it off in it.
  • The number of rolls will depend on what shape you make them. I usually get 16 crescent rolls.
