I had a request for more information on my rolls in my post yesterday. I got this recipe from a dear friend...years ago. I have made them countless times and never had a failure. When I had more to cook for...they came in handy. Now with just the two of us, I seldom make them. I've baked them off and put them in the freezer too. I would probably frost them after they thawed.
So here's the recipe... Balisha
Recipe for refrigerator dough.
2 pkg yeast
2 1/2 c water (warm)
3/4 c shortening
3/4 c sugar
2 eggs well beaten
8-8 1/2 c flour
2 1/2 tsp salt
Soften yeast in water. Add shortening, sugar, eggs, 4 c flour, and salt. Mix (I used elec. mixer) until smooth. Stir in remaining flour to make a soft dough. (You may not need all of it.)
Cover tightly and store in big bowl in fridge. this will rise up so punch it down occasionally. When ready to bake, shape into sweet rolls, dinner rolls, or 2 loaves of bread. Let them rise till double (about 1 hr) Bake at 400 deg. 15-20 min. for rolls, 35-45 for bread. This mixture keeps for several days in the fridge. No kneading is necessary. Just make a pan of rolls whenever you want some. Very easy and fool proof.
