Here is one batch of rolls.... noticed one missing (blushing here)...a gal has to try her food before giving them out...don't ya think?

ROLL Receipe

4 cups flour
1 1/2 cups water (warm)
1/2 cup sugar
1 pkg of yeast
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1/3 cup shortening (I use oil)

Combine all of the ingredients (no certain order is required but I do like to add the water first and then the yeast and let it sit a minute.
I use my mixer and just let it mix up for a few minutes
Then I flour my hands and pinch off some dough and round it, put on greased baking
sheet. I usually get about 15 to 20 rolls from this. Let is rise for about an hour or until double

Put in over at 425 but I have discovered if I put it at 400 degrees and let it bake longer the middle gets done better. It takes about fifteen minutes, then I put it on the rack closest to the burner to bake about 4 more minutes to brown the bottom.

If the top browns too fast, just put tin foil over it and keep baking.


I have made these for years and my sons love them. I like the fact that you do not have to let it rise twice.

OKay...onto the winner.

Nichole facebooked me this morning and chose The Weekes family with the number generator #44.
