Butter Rolls - very old recipe
Yield: 1 Dozen

1/4 c Lukewarm water
1 pk Yeast
3/4 c Milk
1/2 ts Salt
3 tb Shortening
3 tb Sugar
1 Egg; beaten
3 c Flour
3 tb Melted butter

Dissolve yeast in water. Meanwhile, warm the milk in a small saucepan, being careful not to boil. In large bowl, mix salt, shortening, sugar, and heated milk, and egg. When well-mixed, add yeast mixture. If mixture is too hot, you will kill the yeast and will not rise. Gradually add flour a cup at a time.

Knead, let raise in greased bowl for about 1 1/2 hrs, punch down and let raise 5 min.

Divide into 12 equal parts. Form rolls in greased muffin pans. Let rise again for 1 hr. Brush tops of rolls with butter.

Bake 15 min at 400. Remove from muffin tin and brush tops and bottoms of rolls with butter.

I'm going to try this one. I love Butter Rolls....but never had good results with my attempts. How long do you knead it ?

Francie knead them until you are sastisfied with the feel of the dough. I knead mine until the dough has a beautiful smooth sheen:) These melt in you mouth and make 2 batches 1 is not enough!

Do these rolls shape well into cloverleaf or crescent rolls?
