I created these quick Buttermilk Rolls to go with my husbands birthday dinner of KEEP YOUR MAN FRIED CHICKEN, & since I had such an ambitious menu, I wanted something that would not take up too much time.

I found this recipe in a cookbook called "COUNTRY LIVING RECIPES" by Jean Wickstrom Liles, it is a paperback book with 106 pages of recipes, & so old that all the pictures are in Black & White but it does have some great recipes in my opinion. This was one of them. We loved the rolls, I like the idea of mixing the yeast with the flour & other ingredients, I will be making them again soon

2Using a small sauce pan, add the buttermilk with the water and shortening, & place it over low heat until warm(120 degrees to 130 degrees F) I USED A THERMOMETER FOR THIS, BECAUSE IF IT IS TOO HOT IT KILLS THE YEAST, AND UNDERHEATED THE YEAST WILL NOT ACTIVATE.

5TURN DOUGH OUT ONTO LIGHTLY FLOURED SURFACE, AND KNEAD UNTIL SMOOTH & ELASTIC ABOUT 5 MINUTES.
Please NOTE, I chose to use my dough hook attachment for this step, switched to dough hook and Kneaded for 5 minutes, either technique will work.

8Then punch down and shape dough into 1 1/2 inch balls. Grease a 15X10 inch Jelly Roll type pan, and place the rolls on pan about 1 1/2 inches apart. Allow dough to rise a second time in in a warm area, about 85 degrees F, an area free from drafts allow to rise about 35 minutes or until rolls double in size.
