Slider Bun Recipe

Serves: 18 buns
  • 1¼ C milk (I used whole)
  • 6 Tbsp vegetable shortening (Crisco)
  • 3 C flour
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2¼ tsp active dry yeast
  1. Place dry ingredients in the mixer (flour, sugar, salt and yeast)
  2. Heat milk in a pan over medium heat.
  3. When it begins to simmer add in shortening until melted.
  4. Set aside to cool slightly.
  5. Add warm milk to remaining ingredients in a stand mixer with a dough hook.
  6. Mix on low until dough comes away from sides of the bowl and forms a ball, about 1 minute.
  7. Increase speed to medium and mix until dough is smooth and springy, about 4 minutes.
  8. Place in a greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth and let rise for about one hour.
  9. Punch down and form dough into 18 pieces. Shape each piece into a round bun.
  10. Slightly flatten each bun and place on ungreased baking sheet.
  11. Allow buns to rise for about 30-40 minutes.
  12. Bake in 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  13. Cool.
