Lion House Rolls

These are the best "out of this world" rolls you will ever have!

2 TB. active dry yeast
1/4 c. warm water
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. shortening
3 eggs
1 c. warm water
1 1/2 tsp. salt
4-5 c. flour

Combine yeast and the 1/4 c. warm water in a small bowl and set aside to proof.
In a large bowl, cream sugar and shortening until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each addition. Add softened yeast, 1 cup warm water, salt, and enough flour to make a soft dough. Mix well. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rise 1 hour.

Punch down, let rise again for 40-45 mins. ( I have been known to skip this step )
Shape as desired and place on greased baking sheets. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in size, about 40 mins.

Bake at 350* for 15 mins.
Makes 3 dozen small rolls. I usually always double or triple the recipe.
