Dinner rolls

This is my grandma's recipe for rolls. I have never tried making them, but they sure sound good! It looks like a pretty large recipe, so if you're cooking for only a few like we do, maybe cut it in half.


6 eggs well beaten

1 cup shortening - melted

½ cup sugar

2 tsp salt

2 pkg dry yeast

2½ cup water

9 cup flour


Dissolve two packages yeast in 1/2 cup warm water

Mix together eggs, melted shortening, sugar, and salt. Add this

mixture to yeast mixture with 2 cups water, then add 8 cups of flour.

Mix ingredients with large spoon. Let raise until double (about an

hour), and stir down - twice.

Add 1 cup flour before rolling out. Roll out to approximately 1/2 inch

thickness, cut in circles, fold in half and pinch together. Let rise

to about double

Bake at 400° about 7 minutes or until light brown.

Very light dinner rolls if you are patient enough to let them rise.
