Basic Yeast Dough












Trans-fat Free, Good source of fiber


1 package yeast, active dry
1 cup water
warm (105-115 degrees)
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
1 each eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups flour, all-purpose


Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large mixing bowl; let stand 5 minutes.

Add sugar, shortening, egg, salt, and half of flour; beat at low speed of an electric mixer until smooth.

Gradually stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.

Place dough in a well-greased bowl, turning to grease top.

Cover and let rise in a warm place (85 degrees), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in bulk, or cover and refrigerate up to 5 days.

(If refrigerated, let return to room temperature before proceeding.)

Punch dough down; turn out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 4 or 5 times.

Shape and bake as directed for Cloverleaf Rolls, Cheese Crescents, Sesame Buns or Cinnamon Loaf.
