Sweet Yeast Rolls

Sweet Yeast Rolls

2 pkg. dry yeast
¼ cup water, lukewarm
¼ cup sugar or honey
1 tsp. salt
½ cup butter
1 cup hot milk
4-5 cups flour
2 eggs

Soften yeast in water 5 minutes.  Stir until blended.  Measure sugar, salt and butter into mixing bowl.  Add hot milk and stir, cooling to lukewarm.  Stir in 2 cups of flour to make a thick batter and beat 100 strokes.  Add yeast and eggs and stir until blended.  Add ½ to 2 cups more flour to make dough that is not sticky.   Turn onto lightly floured board and knead for 2 minutes or until it is springy.   Shape dough into a ball and place in bowl rubbed with shortening.  Cover and let rise until double in bulk about 1 ½ hours.  Turn onto floured surface and shape into rolls.  Place rolls in greased pan, cover, and let rise until double in bulk, about ½ hour.   Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown.  This recipe also works for cinnamon rolls, scones and doughnuts.
