Pour the cup of boiling water over the shortening mixture, stir until it dissolves. Add beaten eggs. Then add the yeast mixture, which should be dissolved and bubbly.

Cover with a large plate and set in warmest corner of the room away from drafts.

Allow to rise about 1 hour or until dough touches bottom of plate. Scrape dough onto floured surface and knead about 4 or 5 minutes.

Roll out to about inch thickness onto a rectangle shape. Spread with melted butter. Spread dough with a mixture of sugar and cinnamon and (raisins, if desired). Spread to about inches of end of dough on one side. Roll dough as shown. Pinch together. Cut roll into slices. Place in greased pan right next to one another. Pat with melted butter. Cover with waxed paper or a towel and let rise in a warm place for about 2 to 2 hours. Handle carefully, so as not to shake down.

Bake in preheated over about 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees.
