QUICK BUTTERMILK ROLLS

This is another recipe from my old Marshall Township PTA 1955 cookbook.  This recipe was submitted by Anna Stansbury, my beloved 1st grade teacher.

Mix together until shortening is soft,  1 cup lukewarm buttermilk, 1 tsp. sugar, 1/4 tsp. soda, 2 tbsp. shortening, crumble into mixture 1 cake of compressed yeast, stir until dissolved.  Sift together 2 1/2 cups flour, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. salt.  Mix in with hand, add 1/4 cup flour if necessary, to make dough easy to handle.  Turn dough on lightly floured board, cover, let stand 10 minutes to tighten up, then knead until smooth and elastic.  Mold into rolls about 1 inch in diameter, place in greased pans, cover with damp cloth, let rise at 85 degrees until double in bulk, bake 15-20 minutes in 400 degree oven.
