I ripped this recipe out of Taste of Home magazine a while ago and just now got around to making them.
I am thinking they will make a nice addition to my meal plan for Christmas.
1 pkg (1/4oz) active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water (110 to 115)
1/2 cup warm milk (110 to 115)
1/4 cup butter flavored shortening (I used plain crisco)
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
3 cups flour
The how to:
1. In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm water.
2. Add the milk, shortening, sugar, salt, egg and 2 cups of the flour.
3. Beat on medium for 2 minutes.
4. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to form a soft dough.
5. Place the dough in a greased bowl, grease the top of the dough.
6. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
7. Punch the dough down (Fun part alert!)
8. Turn the dough on a lightly floured surface and divide into 12 balls.
9. Place the balls about 2 inches apart on a greased baking sheet.
10. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled (about 1.5 hours).
11. Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes (until golden brown).
Overall verdict. Yummy!
