This recipe from Betty Crocker Perfect Baking Every Time is a keeper - quick, unfussy - hot homemade yeast rolls with a nice texture and taste for only 52¢ a dozen. I wouldn’t change a thing! I think this would be an excellent recipe for anyone who hasn’t tried yeast baking yet.
I liked the fact that I only had to scoop the batter into muffin cups instead of getting out a cutting board and shaping the rolls. It makes them much easier if you are making them in a hurry - less fuss and cleanup too. I used my Kitchenaid for the initial mixing and rising, and my muffin scoop to portion the batter.

Mix 1 1/4 cups of flour, the sugar, salt and yeast in a large bowl. Add the water, shortening and egg; beat until smooth. Stir in remaining flour until smooth. Scrape batter from sides of bowl.
