My grandmother worked in a school cafeteria her whole life and they made these almost everyday. She would visit us every summer and we couldn't wait until she would make a batch for us. It's an old fashion recipe that requires some effort but the end result is wonderful.

2 cups warm milk (100* F)
2 pkg. rapid rise yeast
3 heaping Tbls. sugar
2 heaping Tbls. shortening
1 1/h tsp. salt
5 cups all-purpose flour, or as needed

Pour milk into a large mixing bowl, and sprinkle yeast over the surface. Allow to rest for 5 minutes.

Mix in the sugar and salt; blend thoroughly. Add in the shortening; gradually stir in the flour to make a soft dough.

Put a little flour on the work surface and knead for 3 to 4 min.

Transfer to a slightly greased bowl, cover with a dish towel and set in a warm place until dough doubles in size, about 1 hour.

Grease a baking pan, and put a little grease on your hands. Pinch off dough into tennis ball size rolls and place side by side in the pan.

Cover and set in a warm place and allow to rise for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 400* F and bake in preheated oven until tops turn golden brown, about 20 minutes. When rolls are finished baking, drizzle melted butter over the top, and serve warm.
