When Mother baked zweiback rolls—which means "twice baked"—she'd guard them, lest they disappear quickly! She would bake them on Sundays when friends came by for "fsapa" a meal of cold meat, cheese, jelly and coffee.

Directions

  1. Dissolve yeast and sugar in water; set aside. In a large bowl, combine 3 cups flour, salt, shortening, milk and yeast mixture. Beat well. Add enough of the remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic about 6-8 minutes. Dough should be soft. Place dough in a lightly greased bowl; cover and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down and divide into four pieces. Divide three of the pieces into eight pieces each; shape into smooth balls and place on greased baking sheets. Divide remaining dough into 24 balls. Press 1 small ball atop each larger ball. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until golden. Yield: 24 rolls.
If Cooking for Two: Freeze baked rolls in heavy-duty freezer bags or freezer containers. Thaw when ready to eat.
