GG's Dinner Rolls

Holiday meals just aren't the same without these. My Grandmother was an amazing baker. I always looked forward to her fresh rolls at every gathering. I was intimidated to try making these on my own until a few years ago. It's a process, but easier than you think and so rewarding! There is nothing more comforting than the smell of fresh baked bread in the oven.

Prep time: 2+ hours

Cook time: 15 minutes

Servings: 20 rolls


2 cups warm water

1/3 cup sugar

2 pkgs dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp = 1 pkg)

1 Tbsp salt

5-6 cups flour

2 eggs

1/3 cup shortening

1 stick unsalted butter


-Combine water, sugar and yeast, mix

-Add salt and 2 cups flour, beat well with mixer

-Add 2 eggs, beat well

-Add shortening, beat well

-Add approximately 3 1/2 cups flour, mix by hand until dough is slightly sticky

-Cover and let rest 20 minutes

-Punch down dough and roll it out to 1/2 inch thick

-Cut with 2 1/2 inch cookie cutter

-Dot each cut out with a small amount of butter and fold in half, pinching edges together

-Place in greased pan, seam side down evenly spaced

-Cover and let rise until double in size (30-60 minutes)

-Bake at 375 for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown

-Brush with butter, serve warm
