Grandma Myrtle would bring her rolls. It was already a tradition by the time I became aware of it all. Over the years I may have occasionally, for expediency sake, fallen into the habit buying rolls in a plastic bag. But there is no denying the fact there just is no comparison between the store-bought and the home made rolls; golden brown and enticing you with  come to the table aromas of fresh baked bread. I don t really know where she got the recipe but it dates back at least forty years and possibly much more. When I was of age to leave the family nest, I copied down the recipe and have used it ever since. </i></p> </TD> </TR> </table> <!-- Recipe Atributes. --> <table border="0"> <TR> <TD Width=320> Preparation: 1 hour 30 minutes </TD> <TD width=320> <i><b> Heirloom Recipe </i></b> </TD> </TR> <TR> <TD Width=320> Serves 6 to 8 persons</TD> <TD width=320> Myrtle Holt</TD> </TR> </table> <!-- Ingredients Section. --> <table border="0"> <TR> <TD Width=320> <B>Ingredients:</B> </TD> <TD> </TD> </TR> <TR> <TD Width=320> <UL> <LI> 1 package of yeast <LI> 1/4 cup warm water <LI> 1/3 cup sugar <LI> cup shortening </UL> </TD> <TD Width=320> <UL> <LI> 1 egg beaten <LI> 1 cup warm water <LI> 1 teaspoon salt <LI> 4 cups flour </UL> </TD> </TR> </table> <!-- Procedure Section. --> <table border="0"> <TR> <TD Width=640> <b>Procedure</b> <OL> <LI> Dissolve yeast in the 1/4 cup of warm water.
