1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup boiling water
1 beaten egg
1 cake yeast or 1 dried yeast packet
1/2 cup lukewarm water
3 to 3 1/2 cups unsifted flour
Place shortening, sugar and salt in bowl. Pour boiling water over and mix well. Let cool. Add yeast to lukewarm water and let stand until cool. Add egg and yeast to shortening mixture, blending well. Add flour and beat until well mixed. Turn into greased bowl. Cover. Place in refrigerator overnight or longer.
When ready, shape and let raise 2 hours. Bake 12 minutes at 375 degrees. You can also make nice cloverleaf rolls with this recipe. This is a very easy recipe; so give it a try. I particularly like the cloverleaf rolls. Makes 1 dozen rolls.
