  1. Place 1 cup milk with shortening in a saucepan. Stir constantly over medium heat until shortening melts. Do not allow to boil. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  2. Pour milk and margarine into a large bowl. Add remaining cup of milk and dissolved yeast. In a separate bowl, sift together sugar, 4 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Gradually flour mixture to milk mixture, using a wire whisk or electric mixer. Place uncovered bowl on stove. Allow dough to rise 2 to 2 1/2 hours until doubled in bulk.
  3. Stir remaining 1 1/2 cups flour into dough and mix well. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide in half. Roll out until 1/8 inch thick. Brush with melted margarine and cut with biscuit cutter . Fold each roll in half and dip in melted margarine, place on greased cookie sheets. For immediate use continue to let rolls rise 2 hours or until doubled in bulk. Refrigerate or freeze rolls if you do not plan to use at once.

  5. Bake in a preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. When using frozen rolls, remove from freezer at least 4 hours before serving. When using refrigerated rolls, allow 3 hours for rolls to rise.
