  • 1 1/4 C milk I used whole
  • 6 Tbsp vegetable shortening Crisco
  • 3 C flour
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast


  • Place dry ingredients in the mixer (flour, sugar, salt and yeast)
  • Heat milk in a pan over medium heat.
  • When it begins to simmer add in shortening until melted.
  • Set aside to cool slightly.
  • Add warm milk to remaining ingredients in a stand mixer with a dough hook.
  • Mix on low until dough comes away from sides of the bowl and forms a ball, about 1 minute.
  • Increase speed to medium and mix until dough is smooth and springy, about 4 minutes.
  • Place in a greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth and let rise for about one hour.
  • Punch down and form dough into 18 pieces. Shape each piece into a round bun.
  • Slightly flatten each bun and place on ungreased baking sheet.
  • Allow buns to rise for about 30-40 minutes.
  • Bake in 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Cool.
