From Grandma Beverly
Makes 24 rolls
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup shortening or lard
1/2 cup sugar
1 TBS yeast
1 cup cold water
6 cups flour
1 teas. salt
Mix first 3 ingredients. Add yeast when water is lukewarm. Add the rest and mix. (Love my Kitchen Aid mixer!)
Cover and let raise (Or set your oven to proofing).
Make into rolls (I put them into three square pans).
Cover and let raise again (or use that lovely proofing).
Bake at 375 degrees for approx. 20 minutes.
*For half the recipe, I fill two pans (the rolls aren't as big, but just as tasty!) These are my signature rolls now. We love them! Also, they are really good right after you make them, but they are even BETTER the next day for some reason.
