   Preparation Time: 0:20
   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
   degrees), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in
   bulk, or cover and refrigerate up to 5 days.  (If
   refrigerated, let return to room temperature before
   proceeding.) Punch dough down; turn out onto a lightly
   floured surface, and knead 4 or 5 times.  Shape and bake as
   directed for Cloverleaf Rolls, Cheese Crescents, Sesame
   Buns or Cinnamon Loaf.
