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

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.

  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.

MY REVIEW

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.

WONDERFUL recipe. And very easy to make. My 7-year-old did the kneading and they turned out great! Definitely cannot eat just one :)
