  • 1 cups - boiling water

  • 2 - yeast cakes
  • 3 cups - whole wheat flour
  • 3 cups - white flour
  • Directions:

    Pour boiling water over shortening, sugar and salt. Blend and allow to cool. (Shortening will not be completely melted - chop up with a spoon). Add in the beaten eggs.

    Soak yeast in the cool water. Stir and add into the first mixture.

    Add flour a little at a time, alternating the two kinds of flour.

    Place dough in a greased bowl and turn dough to grease both sides. Cover with tight foil and place in refrigerator overnight.

    Remove from fridge and allow to sit at room temp for 3 hours before using. Then roll out, cut, and place rolls in generously oiled pans. Let rise in a warm place.
