"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

In a saucepan, boil then cool:
-2 cups of milk
-1/2 cup of shortening
-1/2 cup of sugar

In a small bowl, combine then let dissolve (wait until milk mixture is almost cooled to lukewarm so the yeast does not get too big, then die):
-1 cup lukewarm water
-2 heaping Tablespoons of yeast
-2 teaspoons of sugar

Other ingredients:
-2 1/2 teaspoons of salt
-3 beaten eggs
-7-9 cups of flour

-When cooled to lukewarm, poor milk mixture into mixer
-Add 1 cup of flour, yeast mixture, salt, & eggs
-Beat until smooth
-Add rest of flour a little at a time while mixing (until dough pulls away from sides of bowl but is not stiff)
-Place dough in grased owl, cover with sprayed plastic wrap, & let rise until doubled in size
-Punch down & let rise until doubled in size again
-Roll out 1/2 of the dough on a floured counter until 1/2 in. thick, then cut into circles (I did that with a round glass) & place on greased cookie sheet
*I put butter on the dough circles, then stretched them a little lengthwise and folded them in half to create an opening roll, but you don't have to do that
-Let rise for about 30 minutes (I like to cover it with a thin towel, but I guess you don't have to)
-Bake at 375F for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown (I think it took a little longer for that, maybe because I had folded them over, which doubled them...?)

I got this recipe from Lisa Hall, but these rolls are so great I wanted to add them in here! Makes A LOT of rolls, so use half or even a quarter of the recipe if there's only a few of you!
