Featherlight Rolls Recipe

“Aptly named for their featherlight texture, these tender rolls from my Mama-Louise Smart-were a favorite of family and friends alike,” writes Terri Duhon from Bryan, Texas. “They're just as tasty the next day with a slice of cheese on each section of the cloverleaf.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 15 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1/3 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 cup warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 to 5 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in 1 tablespoon sugar; let stand 5 minutes. Add the milk, shortening, eggs, salt, 3 cups flour and remaining sugar. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (mixture will be sticky). Do not knead. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • 2. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 24 portions. Divide each portion into three pieces; shape each into a ball. Place three balls in each greased muffin cup. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-3/4 hours.
  • 3. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Serve warm. Yield: 2 dozen.
