Sunday Rolls

Is there anything better than the smell of hot rolls baking in the oven? This recipe came from a Lion House Cookbook I was given for my wedding almost 19 years ago.
2 T. active dry yeast
2 c. warm water
1/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. shortening
2 1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 cup nonfat dry milk
5-6 cups flour
1 egg
In the bowl of a mixer, combine yeast and water. Stir slightly and allow to stand for 5 minutes until bubbly. Add sugar, shortening, salt, dry milk, 2 cups of the flour and the egg. Beat until very smooth (I use my dough hook for this). Add 2 more cups of flour, one at a time and beat until smooth. Add about one more cup of flour and beat until the dough leaves the sides of the bowl. Beat for 1-2 more minutes. Remove dough from mixer and place in a greased bowl covered with a dish cloth. Allow to rise until about triple in size (1 hour or more). Punch down dough and shape dough into balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Allow to rise again for about 1 hour. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with butter.
