Mexican Sweet Rolls

3 ½ to 4 c flour
1 pkg yeast
1 c milk
¼ c sugar
¼ c Crisco
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 recipe Egg Streusel (below)

In a large mixer bowl, combine 2 c flour and the yeast. In a saucepan, heat milk, sugar, shortening and salt, just until warm, stirring until Crisco almost melts. Add to dry mixture in bowl; add eggs. Beat at low speed with mixer for 30 seconds, scraping the sides of the bowl constantly. Beat 3 minutes at high speed. By hand, stir in enough of the remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough. Place on floured surface and knead until smooth. Place in a greased bowl; cover and let rise for 1 ¼ hours. Punch down. Divide into 16 pieces. Shape each into a smooth ball. On a lightly floured surface, roll or pat each into a 3-inch circle. With a spatula, transfer egg streusel to the circles of dough. Slash tops with crisscross pattern. Cover and let rise until double, about 30 minutes. Bake at 375 for 15 to 18 minutes.
