Famous Family Rolls

2 T yeast
1/4 c sugar
1/2 c warm water

1 c milk
1/4 c sugar
1 t salt
3/4 cube butter
2 eggs

4+ cups flour

Proof yeast, sugar, and warm water for about 5 minutes. Stir the foam, and let rise again for another 5 to 6 minutes.

While yeast is proofing, in a medium saucepan, warm milk, sugar, salt, and butter. When this warm (but not too warm), pour in mixer and add eggs. Mix well. When this mixture has colled just enough so you don't kill the yeast, add the yeast mixture and mix.

Start by adding 2 cups flour, keeping adding flour until the dough is soft, but not sticky. Knead for at least 10-15 minutes (this is the secret to get the right texture).

Cover and rise until double. When double, punch down and let rise again for about 15 minutes.

Cut into quarters, and then cut each quarter section into 1/4's. Let rise until double.

Bake at 375 until golden brown. Brush with butter as soon as rolls come out of oven.
