THANKSGIVING ROLLS TO FEED THE ENTIRE NEIGHBORHOOD

 

5 c warm water

1 package of active dry yeast

1 c sugar

2/3 c shortening

1 tbsp salt

15 c flour

Melt the shortening. Dissolve the yeast. In another bowl, mix the sugar, shortening and salt with the 5 c of water. Add in a bit of flour and beat. Now add in the yeast and the rest of the flour. If the dough is too sticky, add a very tiny amount of flour until it can be kneaded easily. If it is too dry, add a few drops of water at a time. The less added flour the better the chance for light and tender rolls. Let your dough rise overnight in a nice cool spot. The next day, form your rolls and put into a greased pan to rise again. You need at least ¾ of an inch between for growth. Find a nice warm spot so the rolls can grow. Once they double in size, several hours later, they are ready to bake. Heat oven to 375. Bake about 20 minutes, more or less depending on the size of your rolls. If you like a soft buttery roll, brush with butter before you put them in the oven. If you want them shiny, brush on some beaten egg white.
