    This is a basic yeast dough recipe and can be used to make rolls, crescents, knots etc.

           Makes about 5 dozen dinner-size rolls

    1½ cups milk

    ½ cup ( 1 stick ) butter or margarine

    ¼ cup sugar

    2 teaspoons salt

    2 envelopes active dry yeast

    ½ cup very warm water

    2 eggs

    8 cups sifted all-purpose flour

    1. Heat milk with butter, sugarand salt in a small saucepan until butter melts; cool to lukewarm.

    2. Sprinkle yeast into very warm water in a large bowl.Stir in 1 teaspoon sugar.Stir until yeast dissolves. Let stand until bubbly and double in volume, about 10 mins.

    3. Stir in cooled milk mixture and beat in eggs. Beat in enough flour to make a soft dough; turn out onto lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic, abot 5 mins. Adding only enough flour to keep the dough from sticking.

    4. Place dough in large greased bowl; turn to bring greased side up. Cover bowl with clean towel. Let rise in warm place, away from drafts, 1½ hours, or until double in bulk.

    5. Punch dough down; Shape into rolls, knots, crescents, etc.Place rolls into greased baking pans.( if making crescents place on greased cookie sheets). Cover rolls with clean towel; let rise again in a warm place, away from drafts., 45 mins or until double in bulk.

    6. Bake in moderate oven (375º) for 20 mins, or until golden.Brush tops lightly with butter if you wish. Serve hot.

      I hope you enjoy them as much as i do

    These rolls are great.

    Hey Raptor, I just loved the rolls.  They really are perfect, light yet has good body.  Someone else said consider these stolen.. well consider it again.  These are my new favs. Mine were too big, but next time Ill make smaller ones.  Heres a couple of pics.  The reason I looked for a roll recipe is that I want to cook my whole Thanksgiving dinner in the DOs. These are perfect for thanksgiving dinner.  I saved half the dough in frig and will make cinnamon rolls with it in the morning.  I do believe this is the perfect dough for them too.  Thanks for sharing. Debra
