Refrigerator Yeast Rolls

These delicious light Refrigerator Yeast Rolls do their rising in the refrigerator.  In as little as two hours they will be ready to shape. They may be left longer if needed for a later time. I have made this recipe many times and the pan is always empty!

Ingredients needed:
1 package dry yeast or 2 ¼ teaspoons
¼ cup warm water
¾ cup milk, scalded
¼ cup shortening
¼ cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups flour
1 egg

Soften  yeast in warm water; set aside.
Mix milk, shortening, sugar and salt; cool to lukewarm.
Add to milk mixture 1 cup flour; beat well.
Beat in yeast mixture and egg.
Add remaining flour; mix well.
Place in greased bowl, cover and store in refrigerator at least 2 hours or until needed.
About 1 ½ to 2 hours before serving time, shape dough on floured surface.
Let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1 ¼ hours.
Bake at 400 degree oven for 12-15 minutes.
Makes 16 medium rolls.
