You won’t be able to eat just one of my mom’s famous yeast rolls. They’re light and fluffy with a wonderful flavor…and even more delicious served warm with a little butter. —Susan Hansen Auburn, Alabama

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/2 cups boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons active dry yeast

Nutritional Facts

1 roll equals 134 calories, 5 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 21 mg cholesterol, 150 mg sodium, 20 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 3 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 1 starch, 1 fat.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the shortening, sugar and salt. Stir in boiling water. Cool to 110°-115°. Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add yeast mixture, eggs and 3 cups flour to shortening mixture. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  3. Punch dough down; turn onto a lightly floured surface. Roll dough to 1/2-in. thickness. Cut with a 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Fold circles in half; press edges to seal. Place 2 in. apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Brush with butter. Serve warm. Yield: 3 dozen.

"This is now our favorite dinner roll! They are soft and delicious. I did not roll mine out, though. I shaped them into balls and placed them in 9inch round baking pans. They turned out perfect."

"I have a question about step #3. Do you really fold the cut out circle in half and seal the edges? The picture make them look round."
