Lion House dinner rolls

Lion House Dinner Rolls

2 T. dry yeast

2 cups warm water

1/3 cup sugar

1/3 cup shortening

2 1/2 tsp. Salt

2/3 cup nonfat dry milk

5-6 cups flour

1 egg

In the large bowl of an electric mixer, combine yeast and water. Let stand 5 minutes. Add sugar, shortening, salt, dry milk, 2 cups flour and egg. Beat together until very smooth. Add 2 more cups flour, one at a time, and beat until smooth. Add about 1 to 1 1/2 more cups flour, 1/2 cup at a time until well mixed. Turn dough onto a lightly floured board and knead until it is smooth and satiny (I knead it in my Bosch mixer). Return dough to an oiled bowl and cover with greased plastic wrap; let rise until about triple in size. (Today this took 1 1/2 hours, in a warm place.) Use last of the flour as needed on the board for rolling and shaping the dough. Let dough rest on board for 10 minutes so it will be easier to manage if you roll it. Separate dough into three portions. To make plain rolls, roll out each portion into a circle and cut into 8 pie-shaped pieces. Roll up crescent-style and place on baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 12 minutes. Makes between 3-4 dozen rolls.
