Makes 2 dozen rolls
3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 packages active dry yeast
2 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon salt
3 tablespoons CRISCO all-vegetable shortening or 3 tablespoons CRISCO Stick
3 1/4 to 3 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
In large mixer bowl, combine whole wheat flour and the yeast.
