Ingredients

1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup shortening
1 cup boiling water
1 cup warm water (110 degrees to 115 degrees)
2 eggs, beaten
2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
7 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.


Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, combine boiling water, shortening, sugar and salt. Allow to stand 3 to 4 minutes or until shortening is melted and sugar is dissolved.


Add the yeast mixture and eggs; mix well. Add 2 cups of flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (do not knead).


Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and refrigerate overnight.


Turn dough onto a floured surface. Pinch off a piece and form a 2-1/2-in. ball. Roll into a 5-in. rope; shape into a knot. Repeat with remaining dough.


Place on a greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.


Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Notes

These tender rolls will melt in your mouth. Mom would set out her big square-footed honey bowl with them - some sweet butter and a drizzle of honey on these rolls is a special treat.
