E.C. 9992 Yeast Rolls, University of Nebraska Extension Circular, Nov. 1951.
Handling yeast dough is fun. There is much satisfaction in molding the dough and watching it rise. You and your family will enjoy the delicious flavor and delicate texture associated with homemade rolls. The process of making rolls is similar to that of making bread. Less kneading is required because the gluten in rolls does not have to be developed so much in order to support the structure of the roll. As a rule. the dough is much softer and sweeter than that for bread. With a variety of ingredients and shapes. you can make tempting rolls for any occasion.
The principal ingredients are flour. liquid. yeast, and salt. Usually shortening and sugar are also added.
