1/2 cup warm water (105-115 degrees f)
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons honey
5 Tablespoons sugar
1 cup warm milk (105-115 f)
2 Tablespoon butter flavored shortening
4.5 cups bread flour
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 large glass bowl
1 plastic or glass bowl for mixing
13×9 inch glass baking dish

when water is at right temp sprinkle yeast over and let it dissolve.Add 2 teaspoons sugar and wait for it to foam about 10min. Meanwhile warm your milk and add salt, sugar,honey,vanilla and butter flavored shortening to milk and stir to dissolve.Allow to cool to the proper temp. Add milk mixture to yeast in the plastic bowl and add egg. beat together slightly. Add approx half the flour and beat, I use regular hand mixture. Add the remaining flour about 1/2 a cup at a time until you get a soft dough. Meaning the dough is pulling away from sides but still fairly wet. At this time you will most likely have 1/2-1 cup of flour left. you may need to swith from mixer to spatula as dough gets tighter. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and knead about 8 min adding the remaining flour as needed only (less flour the better) The dough will be sticky. When the dough is still a bit tacky and smooth like a babys bottom. grease your glass bowl well and turn your dough in to bowl and flip around to make sure is greased. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in warm place until doubled. Doubling usually 1-2 hrs.
After dough doubles lightly punch down, knead gently 2 min or so. At this point if it’s too wet can add a bit of flour. You want somewhat sticky dough though. pinch off a little over 2oz and roll into what ever shape. Butter the 13x9inch baking pan. Add your rolls into the baking dish. This recipe should make 16 . Cover dish and let double in size again. Should take about 40min. Brush tops with melted butter

Bake at 350 degrees about 16 min or until tops are brown.

**if live a high altitude may need to add about 1/4c vital; wheat gluten to your flour.

These rolls are extremely light and fluffy like a Quincy or Ryans type roll. Are great With honey butter.
If you prefer a more yeasty flavor you can add more yeast though I doubt they will get larger.
