Mom's Best Ever Fast Rising Rolls


This recipe comes from my Friend Lisa.  It was her Mother's rolls and they are truly quick and easy.

These are a sweet roll.  They are very good.
Combine the Sugar, Yeast and warm water and let sit for 5 minutes.
In a microwavable bowl, combine milk and  butter flavored shortening.  Microwave for approximately 2 minutes and 30 seconds.  You just want the milk very warm and the shortening soft.
In a large bowl combine flour and salt. Make a well in the center of the flour.
Pour into the well the milk mixture and the yeast mixture. Mix the wet and dry ingredients. Gently beat the eggs and add to the dough.
Mix it all really well by hand and put in a warm spot to rise until it doubles.
This should take about an hour.  Turn out onto a floured board or mat.  Knead it for about a minute.
Roll out and cut rolls with a biscuit cutter.
Place on a buttered cookie sheet.  Allow to rise about 30 minutes in a warm spot.  Bake until lightly golden brown at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Love,
Barbara


Mom's Best Ever Fast Rising Rolls
6 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbsp yeast
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups warm milk
1/2 cup melted butter flavored shortening

Combine flour and salt in a large mixing bowl.  Make a hole in the middle to pour in the wet ingredients.  In a microwavable bowl, microwave the milk and butter shortening for about 2 minutes and 30 seconds.  You just want the milk very warm and the shortening soft.  In a separate bowl mix together the sugar, yeast and warm water.  This process will dissolve the sugar and activate the yeast.  Pour it all into the hole in the middle of the flour mixture.  Beat up those eggs and pour them in with your other wet ingredients.  Now mix it all really well by hand and put it in a warm spot to rise until it doubles.  It will take about an hour.  Turn onto floured board.  knead it for about a minute.  Roll out and cut rolls with a biscuit cutter.  Place on a lightly floured cookie sheet.  Allow to rise about 30 minutes in a warm spot.  Bake until lightly golden brown at 350 degrees.
