Recipe: Brown 'N Serve Rolls

You could just buy them. In the store, for like $5 for 6-8. More depending on the brand. But these taste better. You see what goes into them. And they are so easy. And you probably already have the ingredients. And it's the MOST FUN I have ever had making bread! I am not kidding, these are amazing.

Here's the recipe:

1 pkg. yeast
3/4 c. warm water
3/4 c. warm milk, scalded then cooled
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. shortening
4 1/2 c. flour
2 1/4 tsp. salt
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in milk, sugar, salt, shortening and half the flour. Stir in remaining flour. Turn on lightly floured board and knead until smooth and elastic. Place in greased bowl; cover; let rise in warm place until double.Punch down; turn onto lightly floured board and form into 24 rolls and place in greased pans. Cover and let rise until double.
Bake at 275 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from pans and allow to cool. Wrap in plastic wrap or foil. Store in refrigerator or freezer. When ready to serve, brown at 400 degrees for 7 to 10 minutes. (Thaw frozen rolls to room temperature first.)

"Forming" them into rolls is the best part. I find that the recipe only makes 20, but maybe my rolls are slightly more generous. You just hold the whole ball of dough and squeeze off a piece about how big you want your rolls to be. That's the fun part. You never played with a more awesome dough or clay until you have made these rolls.

They cost about $1 a batch, less if you can get yeast in bulk (I have yet to discover how to do this: If you know how, enlighten me!).
