Refrigerator Yeast Rolls

No recipe image available. The dough rests in the refrigerator overnight before the rolls are formed and set aside to double in size before being baked.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 (0.25-ounce) packet active dry yeast, or 2 1/4 teaspoons
1/4 cup warm water
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 cup warm water
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups all-purpose or bread flour

Cooking Directions:

  1. Dissolve yeast in warm water; set aside.
  2. Cream shortening, gradually adding sugar, and beating until light and fluffy. Stir in egg, warm water, and the yeast mixture; beat until smooth. Stir in salt and flour to make a soft dough. Cover and chill for 24 hours.
  3. Pinch off portions of the dough and form into 3/4-inch balls. Place 3 balls in each cup of greased muffin tins. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled in bulk.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven at 400°F (205°C) for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Makes 12 dinner rolls.
