Dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in 1/4 water. Mix together sugar, shortening, salt, and really hot water. Let cool. Combine the two mixtures and add the eggs. Stir in flour, leaving dough quite sticky. Let raise until double. Punch down and put in fridge until 3 hours before cooking. Roll to 1/2" and cut out with a glass. Butter one side and fold. Pinch ends together, place on a large cookie sheet, and let raise. Bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Makes about 24 rolls.

Personal Notes:
These are the rolls I make for Thanksgiving Dinner. I like this recipe because the dough is quite sweet. I also make crescent rolls sometimes by rolling dough out to 1/4", cutting into triangles with a pizza cutter, and rolling up into a crescent starting with the large end of the triangle.
