Heavenly Dinner Rolls



  1. In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add milk, sugar, shortening and 4 cups flour; beat until smooth. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 2 hours.
  2. Add baking powder, baking soda, salt and enough remaining flour to form a soft, slightly sticky dough. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Turn onto a heavily floured surface; pat to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with a biscuit cutter or drop by 1/4 cupsful onto greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
  5. Brush tops with butter if desired.

Yields about 5 dozen.

Dough may be refrigerated up to 3 days. Punch down each day.
