These rolls melt in your mouth. I loved them as a child, and I'm happy to make them for my kids because I know I am creating those same wonderful memories my mom made for me! —Gayleen Grote, Battle View, North Dakota

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 2-1/4 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup powdered nondairy creamer
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 6 to 7 cups bread flour

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, shortening, creamer, salt and 5 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 24 pieces. Shape each into a roll. Place 2 in. apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°. Bake rolls until lightly browned, 12-15 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks.
