In large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in 1 Tbsp. sugar; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the milk, shortening, eggs, salt, 3 cups flour and remaining sugar. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (mixture will be sticky). Do not knead. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 24 portions. Divide each portion into 3 pieces; shape each into a ball. Place three balls in each greased muffin cup.
Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 3/4 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Serve warm.
