1 pkg. active dry yeast
1/4 c. warm water (110 degrees)

1 c. milk, scalded
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. shortening
1 tsp. salt

3 1/2 c. sifted all-purpose flour (divided)
1 egg

Soften yeast in warm water.

Combine scalded milk, sugar, shortening and salt. Cool to lukewarm.

Add 1/2 cup of flour to milk mixture. Beat well.

Beat in yeast and egg.

Gradually add remaining flour to form soft dough, beating well.

Place in greased bowl, turning once to grease surface. Cover and let rise until double in size, approximately (1 1/2 - 2 hours).

Turn out on lightly floured surface and shape as desired. Cover and let rolls rise until double (30-45 minutes).

Bake in 400 oven for 12-15 minutes.

A few years ago Juanita let me "punch" her risen yeast rolls down on Thanksgiving at Mamaw's. The next year I wanted to make the "punch rolls" for my family's Thanksgiving Dinner. Although it is her recipe for basic yeast rolls, I refer to it as Juanita's Punch Rolls.
