Little Pillow Rolls BE CAREFUL



THE SHORTENING AND WATER MIXTURE YOU BRING TO A BOIL CAN EXPLODE
WATCH IT CAREFULLY......SOMEBODY IS TESTING THE RECIPE FOR ME TO SEE 'IF' THE WATER AND SHORTENING has TO BE BOILED FOR 5 MINUTES

These are SOFT and YUMMY!

Try them...........but you have to follow the recipe EXACTLY.

1 cup water
1/2 cup shortening
1 envelope active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water (100-110)
1 tsp. sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
5 cups bread flour
1/4 to 1/2 cup butter, melted


Bring 1 cup water and 1/2 cup shortening to a boil in a small saucepan over high heat; boil 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and let stand 30 minutes or until mixture is completely cooled.
Stir together yeast, 1/2 warm water, and 1 tsp sugar in a glass measuring cup; let mixture stand 5 minutes.
Beat eggs at medium speed using a heavy-duty stand mixer; add 1/2 cup sugar and salt. Add shortening mixture and yeast mixture. Reduce speed to low, and gradually add 5 cups flour, beating until blended.
Cover and chill dough 12 hours or up to 5 days.
Turn dough out on a lightly floured surface, and roll to 1/4 in. thickness. Cut with a lightly floured 2 1/2 in. round cutter. Make a crease across the middle of each dough round with a knife, and fold in half; gently press edges to seal. Place rolls on lightly greased baking sheets.
Cover and let rise in a warm place free from drafts, 1 1/2 hours or until doubled in bulk. Brush rolls evenly with melted butter.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Brush again with melted butter, if desired.

They did take a little bit of time, but they were were well worth it. We're going to do a double batch next, time. I think it will be just right to fill up our next size 'up' pan......larger than a birthday cake pan.......but smaller than a bread box?
