one more recipe that was requested

From Tendernoggle:  ALSO...DID I HEAR YOU SAY ROLLS?? RECEIPE PLEASE???  

This comes from the old 1960's Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, the one I learned to cook from.  The great thing about it is, you don't have to knead the dough.  I no longer "scald" the milk.  That's a step that was necessary when people used raw milk (to kill any bacteria that might "fight" with the yeast).  I just get it hot enough to melt the shortening.

PLAIN ROLL DOUGH

1 package active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1 cup milk, scalded
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons shortening
1 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 egg

Soften yeast in warm water.  Combine milk, sugar, shortening, and salt; cool to lukewarm.  Add 1 cup of the flour; beat well.  Beat in the softened yeast and egg.  Gradually add remaining 2 1/2 cups flour to form soft dough, beating well.  Cover and let rise in warm place (82 degrees) till double (1 1/2 to 2 hours).  Turn out on lightly floured surface and shape as desired.  (I roll out the dough about 3/4 inch thick and use a drinking glass to cut out the rolls; place in pan, sides barely touching, and let rise till double.)   Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.

I also use this recipe to make cinnamon rolls:

On lightly floured surface roll 1/2 recipe plain roll dough to a 16X8-inch rectangle.  Combine 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup melted butter, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon; spread over dough.  Sprinkle with 1/4 cup raisins.  Roll lengthwise, as for jelly roll.  cut in 1-inch slices.  Place cut sides down in greased 9x9x2-inch pan.  Cover; let rise till double (an hour or so).  Bake in moderate oven (375) 20 to 25 minutes.  Remove from pan and frost with powdered sugar icing if desired.
