Charlotte's Grandmother's Rolls
1 scant cup Crisco
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 cup boiling water
1 cup cold water
2 eggs, beaten
2 pkg yeast
6-7 cups all-purpose flour
Pour hot water over Crisco, sugar and salt. Blend and add cold water. Cool.
Add eggs and yeast (that has been softened in 1/4 cup lukewarm water and 1 tsp sugar).
Gradually add flour (sifted before measuring). The dough should be workable. Put into covered container for several hours in refrigerator. Spread on well-floured board. Shape into rolls. Cover with melted butter. Allow to rise about 2 hours in greased pans.
Bake in hot oven about 15 minutes.
(If the condition of the recipe card is any indication, this one should be good!) ;)
