My son had drill this week-end and so I thought that I would have dinner ready for him when he got home. He hasn't had homemade spaghetti since he's been home from basic training and that's what he wanted. I also thought that I would surprise him with homemade rolls.
I just love this recipe!
And, typically when I make this recipe, I take half of the dough and make dinner rolls and the other half I make homemade cinnamon rolls!
OMG! They were so good! Just take a look!
Needless to say, my son just loved them!
Here's the recipe for Never Fail Rolls:
1 cup milk
2 packages yeast (4 1/2 teaspoons)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup melted and co0led shortening
1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs
4 to 4 1/2 cups flour
Melted butter
Heat milk to lukewarm (110 degrees). Add yeast and let stand for 5 minutes.
Add salt, shortening, sugar and eggs and mix well.
Stir in flour, a bit at a time. The dough will be soft.
Set in a warm place, lightly covered, and let rise until doubled in size.
Shape as desired.
Bake in preheated 375-degree oven for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
