Dinner Rolls

1 pkg. dry yeast
1 cup warm water
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 egg
1/4 cup shortening, softened
3 1/2 to 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in sugar, salt, egg, shortening and 2 cups flour. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to make dough that is easy to handle. Knead about 5 minutes. Cover and let rise until doubled, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Punch down dough. Shape into desired type of roll. Let rise 20 minutes. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
