Quick Yeast Rolls

These dinner rolls were so yummy and they were a snap to make! I had them done in just a little over an hour, with rising time included. Just a couple ingredients too. They were a little sweet and really soft. a great texture. I know they look like muffins, but they are more the texture and taste of a dinner roll. The original recipe says it makes 8 rolls, but I ended up with 10 large ones, and I could have done 12. I felt like my cups were too full, so I didnt get to let them rise enough the 2nd time. Next time, I will take this same recipe and make 12 rolls, and let them rise 10 minutes longer, to make them just a little lighter in texture.

Quick Yeast Rolls (
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease 8 muffin cups.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the shortening, sugar, and hot water. Allow to cool until lukewarm, and mix in the yeast until dissolved. Mix in the egg, salt, and flour. Allow the dough to rise until doubled in size.
  3. Divide the dough into the prepared muffin cups, and allow to rise again until doubled in size.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
