Why I Love This Recipe

2 sticks unsalted butter, melted and cooled to luke warm
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl, combine the yeast, sugar and milk; allow to stand


until


faomy, about 5 minutes



Add teh butter,. salt and egg to the yeast mizture and mix well


with a wooden spoon.



C. Stir in 3/ 1/4 cups flour, 1 cup at a time, stirring well after


each addition.



Transfer dough to a floured surface and knead gently until have a


rather loose dough*, about 3 mintues, adding just enough of the


remaining flour to prevent sticking. Shape into a ball, cover with a linenen


or cotton (not terry cloth) towel and allow to stand for 10 mi nutes.


The dough is now ready to use. You can refrigerate it for up to 24
