15 Min


1/2 c

1 1/2 tsp
1/2 c
scalded milk
1 large
beaten egg
cake or 1 active dry yeast packet
1/2 c
lukewarm water
3 to 3 1/2 c
all purpose flour, unsifted

Directions Step-By-Step

Place shortening, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Pour scalded milk over and mix well,until salt and sugar dissolve. Let cool.
Add yeast to the 1/2 cup of lukewarm water and let stand until cool. Add egg and yeast to the cooled shortening mixture, blending well.
Add flour and beat until well mixed with a wooden spoon.
Place dough into a greased bowl. Cover. Place in ice box(refrigerator) overnight or longer.
When ready to make, shape and let rise 2 hours. Bake 12 minutes at 375^ for rolls; or 50 minutes in 400^ oven for bread loaf. Remover both from pan immediately after removing from oven and cool on wire rack. Brush tops with butter while warm.
