Refrigerator Rolls

Mona a comment here about my refrigerator roll recipe. I guess that I should put it here for everyone to see again. It's the most simple thing...If you want a pan of rolls, just take some of the dough and make them.....leaving the rest in the fridge for another time. I got this recipe years ago from a friend. My mother in law used to make some pretty much like these. I used to keep this in my fridge and whenever I had to take something to a picnic, Church funeral lunch, or give to someone who needed some comfort....I had something tasty to contribute. This recipe along with my refrigerator bran muffins is one of my recipes that I've used over and over. I'm so glad that Mona and other bloggers are enjoying this recipe. Here it is....Balisha

Recipe for Balisha's Refrigerator Dough

2 pkg yeast
2 1/2 c warm water (warm)
3/4  c shortening
3/4  c sugar
2 eggs well beaten
8 to 8 1/2 cups of flour
2 1/2 tsp salt

Soften yeast in water.  Add shortening, sugar, eggs, 4 c of flour and salt.
Mix (use electric mixer)  until smooth.    I used my dough beaters.
Stir in the remaining flour t make a soft dough.  ( You may not need all of it.)
Place in a large bowl and cover tightly.  Store in refrigerator.
The dough will rise so punch it down occasionally.  
When you are ready to bake, shape into sweet rolls, dinner rolls or 2 loaves of bread.
Let them rise  until double in size (about an hour) and bake at 400 degree's 15-20 minutes for rolls and 35-45 for bread.  
This mixture keeps for several days in the fridge.  No kneading is necessary.  Just make a pan of rolls whenever you want some.  Very easy and fool proof.  


  1. My mouth is watering--just thinking about a nice warm roll (or 3), slathered in butter and jam or jelly!!!

    1. Why don't you make some?....I think your neighbors would appreciate it :)
