Welcome!

Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Yeast Rolls in Muffin Cups

Back when I was a new bride...I knew nothing about cooking. But I knew IT Guy liked to eat so that meant I had to learn. One thing he loved...and still loves today, is a nice pot roast dinner. And what pot roast dinner is complete without some yummy bread? I had a friend back then....and still have her today (Hi Crys!!) that gave me an easy recipe for yeast rolls. There's some rising time involved but no rolling out or forming the dough. Mix, scoop and bake. They're that easy and even more delicious!



Yeast Rolls in Muffin Cups

1 cup warm water
1 teaspoon salt
1 package yeast
1 egg
2 teaspoons sugar
2 ¼ cups flour
2 tablespoons shortening

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in sugar, salt and half of flour. Beat until smooth then add the egg and shortening. Beat in rest of flour. Scrape sides of bowl and cover. Let rise 30 minutes. Grease 12 muffin cups. Stir down dough and fill muffin cups half full. Let rise 20 – 30 minutes. Bake 20 minutes at 400 degrees until golden brown.

Makes 12 rolls
