  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 3 ¼ cups all purpose flour, divided
  • 1 packet of dry active yeast
  • 1 ¼ cups milk
  • ¼ - ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup of butter flavored shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 400 degrees when you are ready to bake*
In a large bowl, add 1¼ cup flour & yeast. Mix with whisk until combined. Set Aside
In a saucepan, over medium heat, add milk, sugar and shortening.
Stir constantly until shortening has melted. Do not boil. (check on the back of your yeast package to see how hot this liquid needs to be. It's usually between 115-130 degrees F. USE A COOKING THERMOMETER IF NEEDED ) If the mixture is too hot then, let it cool for a bit.
Pour milk mixture into flour mixture.
Add in the egg
Beat on low speed for 1 minute and then on high speed for 3 minutes. (this will help get them light and fluffy)
Add in the salt and the rest of the flour (2 cups)
Use your hands or a rubber spatula to mix in the flour until a soft ball of dough forms.
Grease a bowl with vegetable oil and place the ball of dough into it. Cover and refrigerate for atleast 2 hours.
Remove from refrigerator & punch down the dough with your fist to release the air.
Spread a thin layer of melted butter in the bottom of a 9 X 13 pan.
Take a chunk of dough and form it into your desired shape. (Dip the dough in butter or brush on the butter, and place it into the pan.
Cover the pan with a thin kitchen towel and let sit in a warm place for at least 1-1 ½ hours. (wait to bake them until you are ready to serve your meal so they will be piping hot! They don't mind hanging out)
Bake for 10-14 minutes or until golden. Keep an eye on them after 10 minutes. When they come out of the oven brush them with butter. I like to use a light mixture of butter and honey! yummy!
