1/4 c. warm water (110-115)
2 pkg. active dry yeast
1 c. milk
1 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
3 eggs
6-6 1/2 c. all purpose flour
2 Tblsp. butter, melted

Stir together the warm water and yeast; set aside.

In a medium saucepan, heat and stir milk, 1 c. butter, sugar and salt just until warm (120-130) and butter almost melts.

In a very large bowl,combine milk mixture, yeast mixture and eggs. Stir in 4-1/2 c. flour.

Cover and let rise in a warm place until nearly double.

Stir dough down.Using a wooden spoon, stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can.

Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Knead in enough of the remaining flour to make a moderately soft dough that is smooth and

elastic. (3-5 min.)

Cover and let rest for 10 minutes(dough will be soft).

Brush three 9 inch round baking pans with

some of the melted butter; set aside.

On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to about

1/2 inch thickness.

Using a 2-1/2 inch round cutter, cut dough into about 30 rounds, re-rolling dough as necessary.

Brush rounds with remaining melted butter.

Fold each round nearly in half, buttered side inside, so that the top slightly over-laps the bottom.

Divide rolls evenly among pans. Cover; let rise in a warm place until almost double (about 45 min).

Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 min. or until golden.

Invert onto wire racks to cool.
