Aunt Mabel's Dinner Rolls


  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pkg yeast
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup melted shortening
  • 3 1/2 cups AP flour

  1. Pour warm water into large bowl with yeast.
  2. Add sugar, egg, vanilla, salt, and melted shortening. Mix with mixer.
  3. Add flour and continue to mix with mixer.
  4. Cover and allow to rise for 1 hour.
  5. Shape into rolls or buns of desired shape and size, let rise again for 1 more hour.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until browned as desired.

Hint: We made these very small to use as sliders, and later my husband told me his Aunt used this recipe for making buns - like hamburger buns.  These are sweeter than most hamburgers buns, and I topped them with butter and Italian seasoning.  A great way to prepare the dough for the second rise, is to use a pizza cutter to divide the dough into portions.  Enjoy!
