Soften yeast in warm water. Sift 2 cups flour with sugar and salt into
mixing bowl. Cut in shortening until particles are the size of small peas.

make a stiff dough. Knead on well-floured surface until dough is no longer

with filling. Roll the two 14-inch sides toward each other until they meet
in center of rectangle. Cut into 1/2-inch slices. Twist each slice once to
resemble an "5"; place on greased cookie sheets. Cover; let rise in warm
place until doubled, 1 to 1-1/2 hours. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 15
minutes, until golden brown. Sprinkle warm rolls with confectioners' sugar.

Notes: This cookbook was acquired at a junk sale. It captured my interest
because of the annotated comments beside the recipes. The original owner
had made comments or just check marks beside certain recipes. I will
include these as I scan. This one had no rating.
