Ingredients

  • Ingredients

  • 2

    packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast

  • 1/3

    cup warm water (110° to 115°)

  • 2

    cups warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)

  • 1

    cup shortening

  • 1

    cup sugar

  • 6

    eggs

  • 2

    teaspoon salt

  • 9

    cups all-purpose flour, divided

  • 3 to 4

    tablespoons butter, melted

Directions

Directions In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add the milk, shortening, sugar, eggs, salt and 4 cups flour; beat for 3 minutes or until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead lightly. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 2 hours. Punch dough down; divide into four equal parts. Roll each into a 9-in. circle; brush with butter. Cut each circle into eight pie-shaped wedges; roll up each wedge from wide edge to tip of dough and pinch to seal. Place rolls with tip down on baking sheets; freeze. When frozen, place in freezer bags and seal. Store in freezer for up to 4 weeks. Place on greased baking sheets; thaw 5 hours or until doubled in size. Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from baking sheets; serve warm or cool on wire rack. Yield: 32 rolls.
