1.In a bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.  Add milk, shortening, egg, sugar, salt and 2 c. of flour.  Beat until smooth.  Stir in the rest of the flour (should form a soft dough). 

2.Turn into a floured surface and knead until smooth. Or in the kitchen aid (about 6 minutes, dough will be sticky).  Place in greased bowl, turned once to grease the top and cover and let rise in a warm space until double about 1 hour

3.Punch dough down.  Turn onto flours surface, divide into pieces.  Shape into rolls.  Place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets.  Cover and let rise until doubled (about 30 more minutes).

4.Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown. 

5.Top with butter,honey or jam and then eat about 5 or 6 :) Yep they are that good .
