From Grandma’s Country Kitchen — Easy Icebox Rolls

I always enjoyed spending time with Grandma. I spent most of my summers with her. Her kitchen was always filled with the aroma of something freshly baked. From homemade breads and pies to cookies and candy. The aroma of strong brewed coffee was in the air.


1 cup boiling water

1/2 cup sugar

1 tablespoon shortening

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 pkg. dry yeast

1 tablespoon sugar

2/3 cup warm water

1 egg, beaten

4 cups all-purpose flour

Combine boiling water, 1/2 cup sugar, shortening and salt. Let stand until lukewarm. Dissolve yeast and 1 tablespoon sugar in water; add to the lukewarm mixture. Beat in the egg and 2 cups flour. Mix well. Add remaining flour, beat again. Put in a well greased bowl and refrigerate. When ready to prepare rolls, remove desired amount of dough; make into rolls and let rise until double in size.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.

This is a soft dough. Rolls may be baked without refrigeration.

Yield: About 36 rolls

I love any type of warm bread straight out of the oven. Smear butter on a slice and take a bite. Let the melted butter drip from the corner of your mouth. Yummy!!

Enjoy your day!
