Dinner Rolls

Thanksgiving is almost here! 
Let the baking begin! 
Thanksgiving is definitely one time of the year that I love to bake dinner rolls to compliment all the other delicious food we are blessed to enjoy as we give thanks to God for all He has done for us.
A friend of mine gave me this recipe years ago after we were invited to her house for dinner and she served these rolls. They were SO delicious I had to try to make them myself. They have been a part of our Thanksgiving table ever since!


2 pkg. dry yeast
1 cup warm water
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup shortening
** (I substitute a baking margarine which has a similar texture to butter flavor Crisco)
3 eggs, beaten
6-6 1/2 cups bread flour (I use an all-purpose)


Soften yeast with water, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, microwave milk and shortening until melted. Add milk and shortening to mixture along with eggs. Stir in flour a little at a time. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic. 
Cover and let rise for one hour. Punch down dough. Shape rolls into balls, place onto baking sheet (they can be touching but better to not crowd too many on one sheet at a time), cover, and let rise for 30 minutes. 
Bake at 180 Celsius (375 F) for 15-18 minutes.
Makes three dozen rolls.
