Helen's Ice Box Rolls

These are very easy rolls to make as there is no kneading involved. I love a good roll with dinner.

Helen's Ice Box Rolls

3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
3Tbls. butter
1 tsp. salt
1 cake yeast*
1/4 cup warm water
1 egg
3 1/2 cups flour

Scald milk. Pour over sugar, salt, and btter in mixing bowl. Cool to lukewarm. add yeast softened in warm water, beaten egg; add about 1/2 flour. Beat thoroughly. Add remaining flour. Mix well. Grease top of dough slightly. Cover with waxed paper and towel. Store in ice box* until needed. About 2 1/2 hours before baking take from ice box and shape into rolls. Cover and let rise until doubled in bulk (about 2 hours). Bake in moderately hot oven (375 degrees). Recipe can be doubled with success.
*The ice box would be the same as a refrigerator today.
*You can replace the cake yeast with one envelope active dry yeast.
