Nana's Sweet Dough Rolls

Nana has been making these rolls for longer than I can remember. My recipe card dates to 1978 and we still make them to this day.

1 c. milk, scalded
1/4 c. shortening
1/2 c. sugar
1-1/2 tsp. salt
2 T. yeast
1/4 c. warm water
1 tsp. sugar
2 eggs
4 cups flour

Scald milk in a pan over stove and set aside to cool.  Combine yeast, warm water and 1 tsp. sugar in a separate bowl and let dissolve. Add shortening, 1/2 c. sugar and salt.  Once milk has cooled, add to yeast mixture. Add eggs and then flour, one cup at a time. Continue to mix for approximately 7 minutes.

Let rise twice.

When dough is ready, roll out on a lightly floured surface to 1/2 inch thick. Cut rolls with a 4-inch cutter. (glass cup works great.) Dip each roll in melted butter, fold over once, place on pan and let rise. Bake at 350 degrees until light brown.
