Sweet Yeast Rolls

These rolls are melt in your mouth delicious, I had to keep guard over them so Little Foodie wouldn't eat them all. I made a batch of these to take to my sisters house for Thanksgiving and I am sure they are going to be a huge hit. The recipe can make up to 5 dozen rolls but I only made about 3 dozen monster size dinner rolls, perfect for filling with Thanksgiving goodness. Enjoy!

1 pkg of active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
8 cups all purpose flour
2 TBS melted butter
2 whole eggs
2 tsp salt

Soften yeast in warm water with a teaspoon of sugar. Heat milk for about 2 minutes in the microwave.
Add the warm milk to the yeast and then add the sugar and enough flour to make medium batter and let stand for about 2 minutes

Add melted butter (which has been cooled), eggs, and salt. Beat well. Add the remainder of the flour. Sprinkle small amount of flour on counter and let dough rest. Meanwhile, clean and dry bowl; grease clean surface of bowl.

Knead dough until smooth and satiny. Put in greased bowl; turn over to grease top. Cover, let rise in warm place until double in bulk.

Punch down. Turn out on floured board. Divide into portions for shaping; let rest 10 minutes. Shape dough into desired forms. Place on greased baking sheets. Let rise until doubled.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.
