    2-1/2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 3/4 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons celery seed
  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Melted butter

Directions

  • In a bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add milk, sugar, shortening, egg, celery seed, sage, salt, nutmeg and 3 cups flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic; about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours. Punch dough down; let rest 10 minutes. Shape into 30 balls; place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Brush tops with butter. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.
