I have been lucky enough to be invited
to many holiday meals at the Williams
home when these beauties were served.
This recipe has been in Dale’s family
over 3 generations.
The term mouth watering was added
to the dictionary because of these rolls.
Heat first 4 ingredients n a sauce pan until shortening is melted. Cool.
When mixture is luke-warm, add yeast, soda and baking powder. Stir until all is dissolved. Add about 5 cups flour. Mixture should be sticky. Be careful not to add too much flour.
Let mixture rise until double in bulk. Push down and let rise again. Make into rolls. Let them rise.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
