Prep Time:
Stand: 5 Minutes
Chill: 8 Hours
Rise: 45 Minutes
Bake: 10 Minutes


Ingredients

  • 1 (1/4-oz.) envelope active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm water (105° to 115°)
  • 6 cups bread flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • Orange Butter

Preparation

  1. 1. Stir together yeast and warm water in a medium bowl; let mixture stand 5 minutes.
  2. 2. Stir together flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Cut shortening into flour mixture with a pastry blender until crumbly; stir in yeast mixture and eggs just until blended. (Do not overmix.) Cover and chill 8 hours.
  3. 3. Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness on a well-floured surface (dough will be soft); cut with a 1 1/2-inch round cutter, rerolling dough scraps as needed.
  4. 4. Brush rounds with melted butter. Make a crease across each round with a knife, and fold rounds in half, gently pressing edges together to seal. Place in a 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan and a 9-inch round cake pan. (Edges of dough should touch.) Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 45 minutes or until doubled in bulk.
  5. 5. Preheat oven to 400°. Bake rolls 8 to 10 minutes or until golden. Serve with Orange Butter.
