Ingredients

1 cup scalded milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 sticks margarine
1/4 cup lukewarm water
6 packages dried yeast
5 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 eggs, beaten

Instructions

Combine scalded milk, sugar, salt and margarine. Cool to lukewarm. Mix yeast with lukewarm water. Add to cool milk mixture. Add about half of the flour. Add the beaten eggs. Add enough of the remaining flour to make a soft dough. Mix thoroughly. Turn out on lightly floured board and knead until smooth and satiny; about 10 minutes. Place dough in well greased bowl and turn over with greased side up. Keep at 80 to 85 degrees for about 2 hours or until doubled in bulk. Punch down and shape into rolls on a baking sheet. Let rise, then brush with milk. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
