Jennifer's Hot Rolls

Jon's cousin-in-law Jennifer makes these delicious biscuity rolls.

In a stand mixer bowl, mix 1/2 cup sugar, 1.5 tsp salt, and 2 cups warm water.

Sprinkle on 2 packages yeast. Let it sit for a few minutes until it "blooms."

Add 1 egg and 1/4 cup shortening.

Mix in 5 1/2 cups flour using stand mixer with dough hook. Make sure to scrape down sides occasionally to ensure all flour gets mixed in.

Let rise until doubled (~1 hour or so).

Punch down.

Form into biscuit-shaped rolls (~golf-ball size).

Put into greased baking dish (like pyrex). Leave ~1" between each roll.

Let rise again until doubled (another ~1 hour). It's okay if the rolls are touching.

Bake at 375º for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

A few minutes before they're done, brush with melted butter ans sprinkle with salt.

Alternative: to eat at a later date, bake at 300º for 10-12 minutes until cooked through but still white. Cool completely and freeze until ready to use. Defrost and cook at 375º for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
