Grammie’s Rolls

Here’s the recipe for Grammie’s Rolls. The real name is Refrigerator Roll Dough. The recipe is from a lady from the church I grew up in.. her name was Maudie.

For as long as I can remember, we’ve shaped rolls on holiday mornings & had the rolls rising by the wood stove.

I grew up calling them Maudie’s Rolls.. my kids call them Grammie’s.. one of my sister’s kids call them Mom’s rolls.. my other sister’s kids call them Meema’s rolls.

1 pkg active dry yeast
1 1/2 cup warm water
1 cup unseasoned lukewarm mashed potatoes
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp salt
6-7 cups all purpose flour

Dissolve yeast in water.
Stir in potatoes, sugar, shortening, eggs, salt & 3 cups of the flour.

Beat until smooth. Mix in enough flour to make the dough easy to handle.
Turn onto floured surface. Knead until smooth & elastic.. about 5 minutes.

Place in greased bowl. Turn greased side up so both sides are coated.
Cover tightly. Refrigerate 8 hours to 5 days.

Punch down. Shape into one inch balls.
Place in greased muffin cups.. 3 balls in each cup.

Brush tops with margarine, if desired.
Cover with a damp, clean dishtowel. Let rise one hour in a warm, draft free place.

Bake in 400 degree oven 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
