Sweet Butterhorn Rolls Recipe
- 1 cup shortening
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
step 1: In a small saucepan, combine shortening and milk. Heat until shortening is melted; set aside to cool. Dissolve the yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in the warm water. Beat the eggs, 1/2 cup sugar and salt together. In a large bowl, combine the milk mixture, yeast mixture and egg mixture. Sift the flour and baking powder together, and add to the wet mixture; stir until combined, then cover and refrigerate overnight.
step 2: Divide dough into fourths, and roll out on a floured surface. Spread surface with the soft butter. Cut dough into triangles, and roll up from larger to small end. Place rolls on a baking sheet, and allow to rise for 3 to 4 hours. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C.)
step 3: Bake in a preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
