A very good hot roll recipe you may be interested in trying:
SPECIAL HOT ROLLS
1 pkg dry yeast, 1 1/2 Tbsps. water, 1/4 cup shortening - melted, 1 egg, beaten, 1/2 cup warm water, 1/2 teasp. salt, 2 to 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided, 1/8 cup plus 1 Tablespoon margarine - softened.
Dissolve yeast in 1 1/2 tablespoons water in a large mixing bowl. Let stand 5 minutes. Add sugar, shortening, eggs, 1/2 cup warm water, salt, and 1 cup flour. Beat at low speed for one minute. Gradually stir in enough remaining flour to make dough soft. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, knead 4 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Shape dough into a ball and place in a well greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in size. Punch dough down and divide into 2 equal parts.
Roll into a 12-inch circle on a floured board, spread with butter. Cut each circle into wedges, roll up each wedge beginning at wide end. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Point side down. Cover and let rise for an hour (in warm place). Bake at 375F for 10-12 minutes. Yields 2 dozen.
