2 pkgs. Dry yeast

2 cups warm water (110 degrees)

½ cup sugar

2 tsp. salt

6 ½ to 7 cups sifted flour

1 egg

¼ cup soft butter


Dissolve yeast in water; add sugar, salt and 3 ½ cups flour.  Beat thoroughly for 2 minutes.


Add the egg and butter; gradually beat in the remaining flour by hand.  Mix with hands until smooth.  Place in a greased bowl.  Turn over to grease the whole ball of dough.  Cover with a damp cloth, place in refrigerator.  Punch down occasionally.  2 hours before baking, cut off the amount needed.  Shape in rolls, let rise until light.  Brush tops with melted butter before baking.
