1/3 cup warm water
1 pkg dry yeast
2 cups warm water
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
3 tsp salt
4 tbsp shortening
7 cups flour (approximately)

Dissolve yeast in the 1/3 cup warm water. Add 2 cups warm water, egg, sugar, salt, shortening and 3 1/2 cups of the flour. Mix to blend. Gradually work in the rest of the flour as needed. Turn onto a floured board and knead for 10 minutes. Put in a greased bowl, turning to cover top with grease, and cover. Let rise in a warm place for 1 1/2 hours. Punch dough down and let rest thirty minutes. Make into rolls and let rise in pans thirty minutes, uncovered. Or you can put the dough into the refrigerator and keep for up to 4 days. When ready to bake, bake at 400 degrees for approximately 15 minutes or until golden brown.
