Remember the bread rolls you had in school? These are the old-fashioned schoolhouse fresh melt-in-your-mouth rolls. This recipe is from a former school cafeteria worker.
- 4 3/4 cups all purpose white flour
- 1/3 cup shortening
- 1/3 cup powdered milk
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 3/4 cup water (room temperature)
- 2 tbsp yeast (Rapid Rise or instant)
In a heavy duty mixer with a dough hook, add together the room temperature water, shortening and all the dry ingredients except the yeast . Begin mixing; when the mixture incorporates most of the water, add the dry yeast. Beat at a medium speed for 10 minutes. Dough should be in a ball and the mixing bowl will be clean.
Set in a lightly greased bowl in a warm place to rise (about 40 minutes).
When the dough size has doubled, punch down and pinch into 1 1/2-ounce rolls. Using either Crisco spray or Crisco shortening, grease a 14 inch round bread pan and place rolls in pan just barely touching.
Allow the rolls to rise in a warm place. When the bread has risen a second time, bake 23 to 28 minutes at 350 degrees. Pat butter on rolls when still warm.
