TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2 cups warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 7 to 7-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter
  • FROSTING:
  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup hot freshly brewed coffee

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, sugar, shortening, salt, eggs and 3-1/2 cups flour; 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; divide in half. Roll each into a 14-in. x 9-in. rectangle. Spread 1/3 cup peanut butter to within 1/2 in. of edges.
  • 4. Roll up, jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut each into 12 slices. Place, cut side down, in two greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 5. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until lightly brown. Combine frosting ingredients until smooth; frost warm rolls. Cool in pans on wire racks. Yield: 2 dozen.
