1 cup Warm water --105° to 115°
3 tablespoons Sugar

½ teaspoon Salt

3½ c c all-purpose flour; up to 3 Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large mixing bowl; let stand 5 minutes.

Add sugar, shortening, egg, salt, and half of flour; beat at low speed of an electric mixer until smooth. Gradually stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.

Place dough in a well-greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°F), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in bulk, or cover and refrigerate up to 5 days.
