HomeFoodIce Box Rolls

This is the recipe my grandmother used to make dinner rolls.  It’s a bit of work, but definitely worth the effort.  This makes about 3 dozen rolls.

Ice Box Rolls


  • 7 Cups flour
  • 2 packages yeast
  • 1 egg – beaten
  • 2 cups very warm water
  • 1/3 cup melted crisco or butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup sugar


  1. Mix warm water, yeast, sugar and salt. Add egg and melted butter (or crisco) and mix well.
  2. Add the mixture to the flour and knead until dough is made.  Add water or flour as needed to make the dough not too dry or sticky.
  3. Let rise in a warm place (around 80 degrees) until it doubles.  Usually about an hour to hour and a half.
  4. Punch down and make rolls a bit smaller than ping pong balls and place into greased pan.
    Let rise again for about an hour.
  5. Bake at 350 until brown, about 15 – 20 minutes.
