Foodie Friday: Yummy Homemade Rolls Recipe


Here is yet another famous Lewis family recipe for y'all! Such delicious rolls, it's impossible for me to escape a family function without downing at least three. Plain, buttered, with jam, it's all good. I think the record for a cousin eating these rolls in one sitting is like fifteen or something. Too yummy! Preparing the rolls is always a fun way to get amped up for gathering all together the morning of too. Definitely a family tradition I can get on board with :) BARB’S DINNER ROLLS SERVES 48 4-½ cup warm (almost hot) water 4 tablespoons yeast 1 cup granulated sugar ½ cup margarine (or butter), melted ½ cup shortening, melted 10-12 cups white flour 5 tsp.
