Mothers Refrigerator Rolls Recipe @pinch

Want fresh yeast rolls with every dinner for a week? With this recipe, It is possible. Make the dough at the beginning of the week and take out what you need daily. Once baked to a golden brown, they are fluffy, savory, and slightly sweet. Brushing these rolls with butter makes them even better. My mother made these rolls for as long as I can remember. She made them for friends and family. They are easy to make and very light and fluffy.

  • 3/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/2 cup(s) plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup(s) warm water, not too hot
  • 1/2 cup(s) shortening (Crisco or lard)
  • 2 cup(s) warm water, not hot
  • 6 cup(s) plain all-purpose flour (martha white or white lily bread flour)
  • 2 stick(s) margarine or butter (for dipping & brushing)
Intructions :
  • Mix yeast in the 1/2 cup warm water, and set aside
  • Beat egg with a fork, and set aside
  • Mix shortening, salt, and sugar in a large bowl
  • Add egg, yeast mixture, and 2 cups water
  • Mix in 6 cups of flour
  • Scrape the sides of the bowl to make sure everything is incorporated
  • Pour into a (large) oil-greased bowl and grease the top of the dough. Cover TIGHTLY with Saran Wrap. Put in the refrigerator at least overnight. The dough will keep up to a week. You can take out the amount you need and make out rolls or make them all at once
  • Knead on floured board
  • Cut out with a floured cutter. Dip in melted margarine before placing in pan. Cover with cloth or waxed paper and let them rise until double
  • Bake in a 375-degree oven until golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes
  • While still hot, brush with melted margarine using a pastry brush. The less you handle the dough, the lighter the rolls. Don't use an abundance of flour on the board when you cut them out.
