Extra-Special Rolls


2 Packages dry yeast

3 Tablespoons warm water (105 to 115 degrees)

1/2 Cup sugar

1/2 Cup shortening, melted

2 Eggs, beaten

1 Cup warm water (105 to 115 degrees)

1 Teaspoon salt

4 to 41/2 Cups all-purpose flour, divided

1/4 Cup plus 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened


Dissolve yeast in 3 tablespoons warm water in a large mixing bowl; let stand 5 minutes.  Add sugar, shortening, eggs, 1 cup warm water, salt, and 2 cups flour.  Beat at low speed for 1 minute.  Gradually stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.  Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 4 minutes or until smooth and elastic. 


Shape dough into a ball, and place in a well-greased bowl, turning to grease top.  Cover and let rise in a warm place (85 degrees) free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in bulk. 


Punch dough down, and divide into 4 equal parts.  Roll each into a 12-inch circle on a floured surface; spread with butter.  Cut each circle into 12 wedges; roll up each wedge, beginning at wide end.  Place on lightly greased baking sheets, point side down. 


Cover and let rise in a warm place (85 degrees) free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.  Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.  Yield: 4 dozen.


... Very good
