Title: Butter Rolls
Categories: Gram
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, the yeast will
get killed 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.

This was my grandmother’s recipe. When I was
twelve and stayed with her after Grandpa died, she
showed me how to make them. She used no recipe,
but I measured and wrote it down when we made
them. I still have the beat up card with my
mispellings and penciled recipe. Those visits were
a very special gift.
