Add the yeast to the cooling milk. Combine shortening, sugar and salt in electric mixer, low speed. Add the milk and yeast to the shortening, sugar, salt mixture. Add half of flour and increase speed to medium. Beat well for 2 minutes, stir in remaining flour by hand. Put the soft dough on well floured board and kneed lightly. Put in greased bowl. Cover until it is double in bulk. Divide the dough into 6 equal portions. Roll each portion on lightly floured surface to 9 inch circle. Brush with melted butter, cut each circle into 16 wedge shaped pieces. Roll each wedge starting with wide end to point. Arrange on cookie sheet and freeze, or if to be used immediately, arrange on greased baking sheet and brush with melted butter, cover and let rise until double in bulk or until very light. Bake in 425 oven 10-12 minutes until brown. (No instructions on adding cinnamon sugar to the insides)

Mom/Grandma's recipe. Don't forget to put the cinnamon/sugar/butter inside. I look forward to trying this myself...but am sure I will eat more myself than I share.
