Quick Yeast Rolls

I've tried 3 different kinds of quick yeast rolls this month and these get my vote for the best! They take about an hour and a half from start to finish. This recipe only makes 8 rolls, but it would be simple to double. My kids love these for lunch sandwiches! Recipe from

2 Tbs. shortening (I used butter flavored Crisco)
3 Tbs. white sugar
1 cup hot water
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast (or 2 1/2 tsp.)
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. salt
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  1. Grease 8 muffin cups and set aside.
  2. In a glass measuring cup, mix the shortening, sugar and hot water. (I heat for about 35-40 seconds in the microwave). Add yeast to the liquid, mix thoroughly and let stand for about 5 minutes. 
  3. Pour liquid into the bowl of a stand mixer and add the beaten egg, salt and flour. Mix until dough begins to pull away from the side of the bowl. Dough should still be slightly sticky.
  4. Spray a large bowl with cooking spray and scrape the dough into the bowl. Cover and let sit for about 40 minutes, or until doubled in size.
  5. Punch dough down and divide the dough into 8 balls and place in greased muffin cups. Allow to rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes. 
  6. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Bake rolls for 8-10 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center of a roll comes out clean. 
Makes 8 rolls.
