Sally's Dinner Rolls ***
For 18 rolls-------2 greased muffin tins 400D. 10-12 minutes. watch closely after 5 min. (if bottom is browning put up on higher rack.) These rolls are one of the best I have found, but they do bear watching closely.
1 Package active dry yeast or 2 1/4 tsp. yeast from jar; 1/4 cup warm water 105D- 115D. 1/3 cup shortening, melted & cooled; 1/4 cup sugar, dash salt; 3/4 cup milk, scalded. 2 eggs, 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour. After mixing and shaping take egg whites from shell and brush on top of rolls, sprinkle on sesame or poppy seeds on top.
Mixing: Combine yeast & warm water in large bowl, let stand for 5 minutes. Add melted shortening, sugar, salt. Add milk and eggs, stir until blended. Gradually add flour, first one cup stir well then remaining flour. Turn onto lightly floured surface, knead a few times until dough is ready to handle, only add a little flour. Wash out large bowl, grease well, cover and let rise for 30 minutes. Punch down, divide dough in 3 parts, pinch off and roll in ball little larger than walnut size. Place in muffin tins, one ball to each place. Let rise 50-60 min. Bake until brown, 400 D. 10-12 min. Sometimes I take them out cool and put in bag in freezer, take out later and micro-w. for 20 seconds after thawed. Better and easier than most recipes.
