If you have been following my Thrifty Thanksgiving posts, I hope that you are feeling much more at easy about hosting a simply yet abundant Thanksgiving. I also hope you are able to find a recipe that you can use.
Thanksgiving dinner would be incomplete without some sort of bread or dinner rolls.
1 cup shortening
1 cup milk
1/2 cup warm water
1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 teaspoon white sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons salt
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup butter, softened
- In a small saucepan, combine shortening and milk. Heat until shortening is melted; set aside to cool. Dissolve the yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in the warm water.
- Beat the eggs, 1/2 cup sugar and salt together.
- In a large bowl, combine the milk mixture, yeast mixture and egg mixture. Sift the flour and baking powder together, and add to the wet mixture; stir until combined, then cover and refrigerate overnight.
- Divide dough into fourths, and roll out on a floured surface. Spread surface with the soft butter. Cut dough into triangles, and roll up from larger to small end. Place rolls on a baking sheet, and allow to rise for 3 to 4 hours. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C.)
Bake in a preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
These are sure to be a great addition to any Thanksgiving dinner!
