Image by jeffreyw
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.

Homemade Peach Cobbler

Peach Cobbler is one of my favorite desserts. I like the crust for my cobblers to have the pastry crust instead of the batter crust. The crust for this cobbler may be rolled in cut into strips or crumbled over the top of the peaches. A scoop of vanilla ice cream is the crowning touch to this yummy dessert.

Homemade Peach Cobbler                                                                                       

Ingredients needed:
4 cups sliced fresh peaches
1 cup sugar
½ cup boiling water
1/3 cup butter or oleo
1 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup Crisco shortening
¼ cup water

Place peaches in a large flat baking dish.
Cover with sugar; add boiling water.
For pastry, cut Crisco shortening into flour and salt, then add water.
The pastry should be well chilled, it is best to make it the day before.
Crumble or slice pastry over top of peaches and dot with butter.
Bake at 400 degree for about 30 minutes.

You may use canned or frozen peaches in place of the fresh peaches, but the fresh peaches are outstanding.
