I love learning all of the different things my in-laws can teach me. They are completely different from my parents and I appreciate that because it affords me the chance to diversify myself and learn so much more! Now, if I could only get my butt over there so she could teach me to sew- oy vey!
Jackie Ladd's World Famous Rolls
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 package active dry yeast
1 1/4 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup shortening
1 teaspoon salt
In mixing bowl combine 1 1/2 cups of the flour and the yeast. Heat milk, sugar, shortening and salt just until warm (115-120) stirring constantly until shortening almost melts. Add to dry mixture; add eggs. Beat on low with an electric mixer for 1/2 minutes, scraping bowl. Beat 3 minutes at high speed.
By hand, stir in remaining flour to make a soft dough. Shape into ball.
Place in lightly greased bowl; turn once to grease surface. Cover; let rise in warm place until the dough doubles. This will take between 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Punch down and turn out on floured surface. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
Shape into desired rolls.** Cover, let rise in warm place until double (30-45min). Bake on greased baking sheets or in greased muffin tins at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
Voila, heaven. Or as close we we're getting here on earth!
** St. Jackie rolls up three small balls to each muffin tin to get the desired effect shown above! You can also find this on Not Just a Housewife's and Bizzy Bakes' blog!
Until next time...
