Pillow Soft Dinner Rolls

Soft and Delicious!

  • 4 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115° Fahrenheit)
  • 2 cups warm milk (110° to 115° Fahrenheit)
  • 6 Tablespoons shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 7 cups all-purpose flour

In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, shortening, eggs, sugar, salt and 3 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.

Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes (dough will be sticky). Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 24 pieces. Shape each into a roll. Place 12 rolls each into two 12-inch Dutch ovens.  Cover and let rise until doubled. Bake with 6-8 briquettes bottom heat and 14-16 briquettes top heat for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown, rotating lids and ovens 90 degrees in opposite directions every 10 minutes.
