Dinner Rolls

Comment on this recipe

"My mom was a great baker who baked and sold cakes and rolls and such. She got this recipe from a Gold Medal cookbook 50 some years ago."

Ingredients

2 packages yeast (dissolve in 1/4 cup warm water)
2 cups milk, scalded and cooled
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 eggs, well beaten
1/2 cup shortening, melted ("I use margarine.")
7 to 7-1/2 cups flour

Instructions

Mix in order given. Let rest, covered, for 10 minutes. Knead dough until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.

Put in greased bowl, cover and let rise. Punch down. Make into whatever shape rolls you want. Cover with old dish towel and let rise until double.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.

Note: "I always roll out half of it and spread butter on it and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon and roll up. Cut with a piece of thread and lay slices in a greased pan. Let rise until double and bake. Turn out on rack to cool and frost with powdered sugar icing for great tasting cinnamon rolls."

1864 -- 150 years ago: The board of education has granted Thursday as a holiday for the children, with the expectation that parents who desire to have their children attend the Scott County Fair will do so on that day and save irregularity the rest of the week.

1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
