My Favorite Overnight Rolls: From Grandma's Kitchen

My Favorite Overnight Rolls
2 packages dry yeast
2 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees)
3/4 cup soft shortening
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs beaten
8 to 8 1/2 cups flour
3 teaspoons salt

Soften yeast in warm water – then add to the flour and other ingredients.

Knead on floured board until smooth. Put in large bowl or kettle with tight cover. Place in refrigerator or where it is cool overnight or until needed. It will keep for 2 days. Shape into rolls, dip into melted butter or margarine and put into greased pans. Let rise in warm place (not hot)
until double in size 1 hour or more. Bake in hot oven 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Turn out on rack or board to cool.
