GRANDMA'S HOMEMADE YEAST ROLLS

This recipe is from my mother-in-law.

2 cups warm water (not hot)
2 pkgs dry yeast
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp salt
1/4 cup soft or liquid shortening
1 egg, beaten
6 1/2 to 7 cups flour

Put warm water in a mixing bowl and add yeast, sugar, salt, and egg; mix well. Add 4 cups of flour and mix with a large spoon. Gradually add remaining flour and mix by hand till mixture is neither sticky or dry. Cover with a clean dish cloth and allow to rise until double in size. Punch down the dough and make into rolls about 1 1/2-inches in diameter. Allow dough to rise again. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes.
