Dinner Rolls

This recipe is from the Southern Plate cookbook and website. They were easy to make and went great with the soup we had yesterday.

Dinner Rolls
1/2 c. sugar
2 envelopes rapid rise yeast
1 1/2 t. salt
5 c. flour
1/2 c. crisco
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. warm water
3/4 c. butter melted
In a mixer add sugar, yeast, salt and 2 c. of flour. Add the crisco and mix until clumpy. Then add in eggs, water and 1/2 c. of the butter and mix. Change to the dough hook and add in the rest of the flour and mix. Cover the bowl and let rest for 20 minutes. (My kitchen is cold so I turn on the oven on low and when it gets warm I shut it off. Then I put the bowl in the oven.) Then knead the dough on a floured surface a few times and pat into a 9 x 13 size (3/4 inch thick). Cut the dough into 18 pieces using a pizza cutter. Move the rolls to a greased pan. Cover and let rise for 15 minutes in the oven. Remove from the oven and turn it on to 350. After 5 minutes, put the rolls in the oven and bake for 25 minutes. Remove and brush with butter, then bake for another 5 minutes.
