Many years ago, The UPS Store guy would travel alot on business. One of his favorite places to go was the Amana area in Iowa. They had a great restaurant there, or so I was told. :) I think he was right, too. One time he brought home a cookbook from their restaurant. I love using many of the recipes in that cookbook. One of my favorite is this easy dinner roll recipe. So, I thought I would share it with you.
This picture is of the rolls I made last week.
Quick Dinner Rolls
1 pkg dry yeast
3 Tbsp warm water
3 Tbsp sugar
3/4 tsp salt
3 Tbsp melted shortening
1 cup warm water
3 cups flour
Dissolve yeast in 3 Tbsp water. Add rest of ingredients. Mix well and knead a few minutes; let rest for 15 - 20 minutes. Pinch off dough, shape, and place in a greased pan. Let rise for 30 minutes in a warm place. Bake at 350 F, until brown. Makes 9 - 12 rolls, depending on the size you make them.
Note: I put my rolls on a cookie sheet, because I wanted them flatter. We used them for leftover turkey sandwiches that way.
I hope you enjoy these rolls as much as we do!
