Dinner Rolls, My 4-H Project

Hey ya'll, want to see my 4-H project? Yes, they are dinner rolls. They go into judging today, I'll post how they do when I find out. I also brought them to the Farmers Market and they did really well there. (Sorry I can't get the picture to work right now, I'll come back later and see if I can get it fixed.) Here is the recipe.

Dinner Rolls

Quantity: About 60 rolls, depending on the size.
Time: 35-40 minutes
Temp: 350 degrees

½ c. water
2 pkgs. Dry yeast or compressed yeast
4 c. lukewarm water
1 egg or ½ c. dry skim milk powder
½ sugar
12 c. unsifted flour
1 tbsp. Salt
¼ c. soft shortening

Sprinkle yeast over the ¼ cup water. Mix sugar and 4 cups water. Add 6 cups of flour and dry milk (or egg) and beat to a smooth batter, using mixer if you wish. Add yeast mixture and beat until bubbles appear. Add salt and shortening. Gradually add remaining flour. Mix well and knead 10 minutes. Let rise until double. Punch down and let rise again. Form into loaves or rolls, let rise until light and then bake.
