Refrigerator Rolls

Refrigerator Rolls are a favourite in Our Greener Kitchen. Volunteers and guests always ask for the recipe. We like it because it's a time-saver. We make it the day before and the first thing the day's cook does is set the rolls out in pans to  rise and we can have them ready for lunch. 

4-1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast

2 cups warm water (approximately 105 F)

2 Tablespoons white sugar

¼ cup shortening

1 egg

½ cup white sugar (scant)

6- ½ cups all purpose flour

2 teaspoons salt


In a large bowl, dissolve 2 Tablespoons of white sugar in warm water. Add yeast and set aside to proof for 10 minutes.
Melt shortening in microwavable bowl. In another bowl, mix together sugar, salt,  and egg. Add mixture to yeast, and stir in flour. If the mixture is very stiff, add a little more water.
Cover dough with a damp cloth, and place in refrigerator. Punch down occasionally as dough rises. You can leave dough in refrigerator overnight.
Two hours before baking, shape the dough into rolls. Place on greased pans, baking trays or muffin pans. Let rise 2 hours.

Bake at 400 degrees F ( 205 degrees C) for 8 to 10 minutes.
