(Very Good) Quick Yeast Rolls

Hey everyone! I've mentioned that I'm on a mission to find homemade breads that are quick, easy and tasty, these rolls from Allrecipes fit the bill! They take about one hour and 10 minutes from start to finish.
Soft, fluffy, fragrant and yummy! My sons loved these rolls-very high praise indeed:@)

Quick Yeast Rolls
2 Tblsp shortening
3 Tblsp sugar
1 C hot water (I used hot tap water)
1 (.25oz) envelope yeast or 2 1/4 tsp yeast
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp salt
2 1/4 C A/P flour
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and grease 8 muffin cups.
  2. In large bowl mix shortening, sugar and water. 
  3. Cool to lukewarm and add yeast.
  4. Add the rest, mix well. 
  5. Let rise in bowl until double in size (approx 25 minutes).
  6. Divide into muffin tin and allow to rise until double in size again.
  7. Bake 10 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.
Notes:
  • I subbed one cup of King Arthur Whole Wheat Flour.
  • All of the shortening did not melt completely, no problem.
  • I used my Kitchen Aid with the regular paddle.
  • This is a wet, sticky dough. I added it to the muffin pan with a spoon, pushing it off the spoon with my finger.
  • My boys have asked me to make these again!
Here's the yeast I buy, which ever one is cheaper.
Have a happy day:@)

  1. How did you know that I was Googling quick breads yesterday? Those look so good. Are you supposed to melt the shortening before addingto the rest of the ingrediants?

  10. Well, yum. I'm so lazy about bread making that it's embarrassing. I usually make popovers or buy a baguette.

    I'm so ashamed...

  11. Simple and easy....I have to try these. I wasn't aware that yeast came in a jar, but I am not one to make bread very often...actually, it's been years!! lol!

    Has Earl turned up?

  16. Way to go! These look luscious and that is quick start to finish. I'm always on the hunt...pinning them too. Thanks for sharing with all of us.

  17. Lynn, it's a good thing I don't live in your household because I would weigh a ton eating that wonderful bread you make. I wouldn't be able to resist it! You are a very good baker, especially breads and rolls. Is there some trickery going on or did the witches really return Earl as Kathleen said? I hope it is true, for Earl's sake!!---Shannon

  19. They look great, I love rolls. I have more rolls than a bakery! :)
    I buy the bag of yeast from Costco or BJ's. Cheaper and lasts a long time in the frig.
    Have a great weekend, hope it stops raining soon!

  20. Those rolls look and sound yummy!

    Do you have any suggestions on mixing dough if you don't have a large mixer? I have an electric mixer that doesn't work too well after two minutes of mixing (sigh) and I don't know what else to use.

  21. I could eat the batch by myself! I am such a bread fiend. These look incredible and have such a nice texture. Wish I had some coming out of the oven now.
