Butterhorn Dinner Rolls
Ingredients
1
package active dry yeast
1
tablespoon sugar
3
eggs
1
cup warm water (110 degree F to 115 degree F)
1/2
cup sugar
1/2
cup shortening
3/4
teaspoon salt
5 1/4
1
egg white (optional)
1
tablespoon water (optional)
 
Sesame seed (optional)
Directions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the yeast and 1 tablespoon sugar. Using a fork, beat in the eggs and warm water. Let stand for 15 minutes.
  2. Beat in 1/2 cup sugar, shortening and salt on low speed with an electric mixer. Add 2 cups of the flour and beat until combined, then beat for 3 minutes on high speed.
  3. Stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can with a spoon. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface; knead in enough of the remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough that's smooth and elastic (6 to 8 minutes total).
  4. Shape dough into a ball and place in a greased bowl; turn once. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight. (Or let the dough rise in a warm place until doubled, for about 1 to 1-1/2 hours.)
  5. Punch dough down. Divide into 2 equal portions. Let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes. (Or let rest 10 minutes for unchilled dough.)
  6. On a floured surface, roll each portion of dough to form a 12-inch circle. Cut each circle like a pie into 12 wedges. Starting from the wide end, roll up each wedge to form a crescent. Place, point sides down, on greased baking sheets. Cover; let rise in a warm place until nearly doubled (30 to 45 minutes).
  7. If you like, lightly beat egg white with 1 tablespoon water. Brush over rolls, then sprinkle with sesame seed. Bake in a 375 degree F. oven 12 minutes or until golden. Serve warm. Makes 24 rolls.
