- 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
- 3 eggs
- 6-3/4 to 7-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

- 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.

- Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Brush with butter. Serve warm. Yield: 3 dozen.

"Good dinner rolls."
"These are FABULOUS!"
"This recipe came out so wonderful, I felt like I had mastered bread making. I did use my stand mixer for the kneading, as these old hands are not what they used to be. Thank you for a great recipe."
"Wonderful! These freeze very well after baking. My freezer is full of them so that I can pull them out whenever we have guests."
