1 pkg. active dry yeast
1/2 c. warm water (105 to 115 deg.)
5 c. sifted all-purpose flour, divided
1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. shortening
2 lg. eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 c. butter, melted
1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour

Combine yeast and warm water in a 2-cup
liquid measuring cup; let stand 5 minutes.
Combine 4 cups sifted flour, sugar and salt in
a large bowl. Stir in yeast mixture and
shortening. Add eggs and remaining 1 cup
sifted flour. Stir vigorously until well blended.

rub dough with some of the melted butter.

over work surface; turn dough out onto floured
surface. (Dough will be soft.) Sift 1/2 cup flour
evenly over dough. Roll dough to 1/2-inch
thickness; brush off excess flour. Cut out
dough, using a floured 2-inch biscuit cutter.
Pull each round into an oval, approximately 2
1/2 inches long. Dip 1 side of oval into melted
butter. Fold oval in half with buttered side
facing out.For each pan, place the folds of 10
rolls against the side of prepared pan,
pressing center fronts of rolls together gently.
Place 5 rolls in inner circle and 1 roll in center
for a total of 16 rolls per pan. Cover loosely
and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts, 1
hour or until doubled in bulk. Preheat oven to
400. Bake rolls, uncovered for 12 to 15
minutes or until lightly brown. Makes 64 rolls.

Personal Notes:
Sister Schubert reduced her commercial
recipe and shared it with the Montgomery
Advertiser in 1996 when she promoted the
sale of her cookbook. Sister sold her
business to a commercial company several
years ago. This kitchen makes nearly 200,000
rolls every day. Many grocery stores and
restaurants carry them. I hope Sister will not
mind my sharing this recipe with the Rushton
cookbook. Most of us will buy the rolls to save
time. Submitted by Billie Jo Riley
