  • ¼ cup warm water
  • 1 pkg. yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons or 1/4 oz.)
  • 2 cups warm milk (OR soy milk! Works awesome!)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup shortening , margarine or butter
  • 1 well-beaten egg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 5 ½ - 6 cups flour.
  1. Add yeast to warm water in a small bowl (or cup). Sprinkle sugar over top. Wait 5 minutes until frothy.
  2. Pour warm milk into a bowl and add yeast mixture to it, stir until combined.
  3. Add sugar, shortening OR margarine, egg and salt to the bowl, mixing with a fork or bread hook if you have one.
  4. Add flour in a cup at a time, stirring and mixing between each cup to reduce mess. If you’re mixing by hand, you’ll probably want to use your hands after four or five cups.
  5. Shape dough into a large ball. Grease the sides of a bowl and place the ball inside. Cover with a wet cloth and let rise in a warm place ~ 1 hour.
  6. Grease baking dish. Punch down the dough and form into equally sized balls (about half the size you want them to be eventually). Cover with a wet cloth and let rise in a warm place for another hour.
  7. Remove the cloth and bake at 400° for 15 minutes.
  8. Let cool for at least 5 minutes before devouring.
