Homemade Dinner Rolls - by Momma Katie (Aunt Priss)

Momma Katie memories: I will never forget the smell of these rolls rising and baking in Aunt Priss's oven. After starting a warm fire in the fireplace, cooking breakfast (homemade biscuits, sausage, eggs and milk gravy), she would start the rolls so that they would be ready for dinner. She would even put 2 balls of dough side by side to make rolls that split down the middle for easy butter application.


1 package dry yeast
1/2 tsp. sugar

Put into 1 cup of warm water and let stand for about 15 minutes.

Then add:

1 cup scalded milk
3 TBS. lard (haven't tried oil in it's place yet)
2 TBS. sugar
2 tsp. salt
5 cups flour

Let rise. (can't remember if you let it rise in bowl and make into rolls and rise again or just make into rolls and let rise) I do remember it is an all day process and needs to be in a warm area to rise.

Bake at 450 degrees. Makes about 4 dozen.
