Basil Batter Rolls

My friend, Janet, gave me a stack of cookbooks.  I found this recipe in one and wanted to try it right away.  I ended up freezing more than 1/2 of the batch since this makes 2 dozen and I didn't have a party!   They are easy to make and tasted great!

Basil Batter Rolls
Christmas with Southern Living Cookbook, vol 3

2 pkg active dry yeast
1 1/2 c warm water
1/3 c shortening(Beth used Crisco stick)
4 c flour
1/4 c sugar
1 1/2 salt
1 large egg
2 T pesto
2 cloves garlic, minced
melted butter

Combine yeast and warm water in a 2 c liquid measuring cup; let stand 5 minutes.

Combine yeast mixture, shortening, 2 cups flour, sugar, salt and egg in a large mixing bowl.  Beat at medium speed until well blended.  Stir in pesto and garlic.  Gradually stir in remaining flour--dough will be sticky.

Cover and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour until doubled.

Stir dough; spoon into greased muffin pans, filling half full.  Cover and let rise for 45 minutes.

Bake at 400 for 15-16 minutes or until golden.  Brush with melted butter, if desired.  Makes 2 dozen
