Homemade dinner rolls...

Colette and I made dinner rolls today.  I did the mixing and showed her how to shape them.  She made a pan of them to take home for her family's dinner.  After they baked she sampled one and declared them delicious, especially with butter! 

Here is the recipe I used! 

Dinner Rolls

4 1/2-5 C. flour
1/2 C. sugar
1 t. salt
2 pkg. dry yeast
3/4 C. milk
1/2 C. water
1/2 C. shortening
2 eggs-room temperature

Measure 1 3/4 C. flour. Stir in sugar, salt, and yeast. Heat milk, water and shortening until warm. Pour into flour mixture. Add eggs and beat with mixer at low speed for 1/2 minute. Continue beating at high speed for 3 minutes. Stir in remainder of flour. Douigh will be soft and rather sticky. Knead about 3 minutes until smooth. shape after sitting 20 minutes. Let rise 40-50 minutes. Bake until brown at 350 degrees 12-15 minutes.

Makes 2 1/2 dozen

Did you use the dough hook on the mixer to make these? And if so, did you still kneed them?
