Southern style yeast rolls

 Cafeteria Lady Rolls

 Ready in: 2 hrs
 Serves/Makes:   16   

Ingredients:
4 cups flour
2 tablespoons yeast
1 tablespoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup melted shortening (may use butter)
1 3/4 cup warm milk

 Directions:

Add yeast to warm milk and let sit 1 minute; stir and add melted shortening.

Have dry ingredients ready and add to milk. Slowly mix on medium speed until the dough no longer sticks to the side of the bowl.

Place dough in a well-greased bowl and let rise until doubled in bulk. Stir down and form into rolls (note that dough is sticky) and let them rise again. Bake at 425degrees until brown and brush with butter while hot.

I halved this to make 8 rolls.  I used 1/2 Tbsp yeast and about half of everything else.
