Directions

  1. Place 1 cup milk with shortening in a saucepan. Stir constantly over medium heat until shortening melts. Do not allow to boil. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  2. Pour milk and margarine into a large bowl. Add remaining cup of milk and dissolved yeast. In a separate bowl, sift together sugar, 4 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Gradually flour mixture to milk mixture, using a wire whisk or electric mixer. Place uncovered bowl on stove. Allow dough to rise 2 to 2 1/2 hours until doubled in bulk.
  3. Stir remaining 1 1/2 cups flour into dough and mix well. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide in half. Roll out until 1/8 inch thick. Brush with melted margarine and cut with biscuit cutter . Fold each roll in half and dip in melted margarine, place on greased cookie sheets. For immediate use continue to let rolls rise 2 hours or until doubled in bulk. Refrigerate or freeze rolls if you do not plan to use at once.
  4. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  5. Bake in a preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. When using frozen rolls, remove from freezer at least 4 hours before serving. When using refrigerated rolls, allow 3 hours for rolls to rise.

This is a great recipe! Mixing it up is quick, and you just walk away and let it rise. There is NO NEED TO KNEED! It's perfect! My 11 year old and I put these in the oven and everyone said "Oooo" and "Ahhhh" as we tried them. I even tried rolling the dough into balls and placed two side-by-side in a muffin pan... and they baked up well. Enjoy! Email this to a friend! Thanks Monica! Oh, and try cutting Pollish sausage into 3rds, and wrapping this dough around them, and making "pigs-in-a-blanket". Yummm!!!

This recipe is really good, but needs some corrections. Step 2 should say to pour milk and SHORTENING into bowl, not milk and margarine. Also, there is no mention of when to add the sugar. I added 2 Tbsp with yeast and the remaining 1/2 cup with the flour.

These were a major hit Thanksgiving, my family wants them next year. They are so easy and I love that you can make them ahead and freeze. I do alot of cooking ahead when I'm expecting a crowd and these have been added to my tried and true stand-bys.
