2 1/4 Tsp Yeast 1/3 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Warm Water 8 Cups Bread Flour
2 Cup Milk 2 Tsp Salt
3 Tbl Butter 2 Large Eggs
Dissolve yeast in water and let sit for 5 minutes in a large bowl. Warm milk until about 110 degrees and add to the yeast. Stir in sugar and 1 cup flour. Beat this with a heavy spoon for 10-15 minutes. Let stand about 10 minutes.
Add the melted butter, eggs (lightly beaten), and salt and beat well. At this point you'll want to add enough flour to form a soft dough, a cup at a time, until it forms a soft dough. Let this mixture sit about 15 minutes. While the dough is resting, grease a large bowl.
Knead the dough until smooth (if you have a stand mixer with a dough hook, it takes about 5 minutes). Put the dough in the greased bowl. Cover the dough and let it rise for about 30 to 40 minutes, until it is double in size. Beat down. Put the dough out onto a floured surface and divide it out into portions for shaping. Once all dough is divided, return to the first portion formed and shape into a small roll. Place on a greased baking sheet and repeat with all portions. Let them rise until doubled in size, about 20 to 30 minutes. While rising, heat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown. Baste with butter immediately.
