Alice’s Dinner Roll for Freezing
- 6 cups flour (set 1 cup aside to cover top and sides in bowl)
- 3 teaspoons salt
- 1 cup Crisco shortening
- ½ cup sugar
- 2 cups warm water
- 3 packages of dry yeast
- 2 beaten eggs
Combine flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix warm water and yeast to make a water mixture. Add a little water mixture to the flour, sugar, and salt mixture. Then add Crisco shortening and beaten eggs.
Knead. After kneading leave in bowl. Take the 1 cup of flour that you set aside and pour over the side, top and bottom of dough. Then let rise to double size (approx. 3 hours). Lay out on flowered board and let double again in size.
Next, beat with fist. Add flour if necessary. Roll out to ½ inch thick. Cut and place in a greased dark pan. Then you can freeze or prepare to cook. Let rise to double in size. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-30 minutes or until brown.
