In a small saucepan, combine shortening and milk. Heat until shortening is melted; set aside to cool. Dissolve the yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in the warm water. Beat the eggs, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt together. In a large bowl, combine the milk mixture, yeast mixture, and egg mixture. Sift the flour and baking powder together, and add to the wet mixture; stir until combined, then cover and refrigerate overnight.
Divide dough into fourths and roll out on a floured surface. Spread surface with the soft butter. Cut dough into triangles and roll up from larger to small end. Place rolls on a baking sheet, and allow to rise for 3 to 4 hours.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C.)
Bake in a preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

Love these soft, warm rolls!
My favorite recipe for Thanksgiving or any special dinner
Rinse a large bowl with hot water to warm it.
Combine water, sugar and stir in yeast to dissolve. When it begins to form bubbles, add the salt, eggs, butter, and 2 cups of the flour. Beat until smooth.
Mix in remaining flour to make a stiff dough.
Knead dough until smooth, place it in a greased bowl, turn once and cover with a towel.
Let rise in a warm place until double in bulk. If you want to hurry this process, place a small terry towel in your slow cooker, place the bowl with dough on the towel, turn your slow cooker just on warm, cover with another towel. keep an eye on it until it is double.
Punch dough down and divide into three equal portions.
Roll each portion into a 12 inch circle. Cut into 8 wedges. A pizza cutter works well for this step, cutting first into quarters then, cutting each quarter in half. Roll up the wedges starting with the wide end. Press the point into the roll slightly and place on a greased cookie sheet with the point down against the pan, shaping them like a crescent moon.
Cover and let rise until almost double.
Bake at 400 degrees F. for 12 -15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. I usually put mine back in my warm slow cooker surrounded by towels. or you can wrap them in foil and reheat in the oven.

These go with just about any meal.
Add together and stir. Pour into a large bowl and cool. Add 3 eggs, one at a time, beating after each egg. Add 1 package yeast and 2 teaspoons sugar softened in 1/4 cup warm water and 5-5 1/2 cups flour. Add yeast and flour and beat well. Let rise until double in bulk.
Stir down and refrigerate in a covered bowl overnight or at least 3 hours. Divide into 3 parts. Roll into a round as for pie crust. Spread with softened butter and cut in wedges as for pie wedges. Roll up, starting with large end. Bend to form crescent. Let rise on greased pan at least 2 hours. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes.
