2 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter or margarine
2 teaspoons salt
2 package active dry yeast
1/3 cup warm water (105 degree F to 115 degree F)
8 - 9 cups all-purpose flour
3 beaten eggs
Butter or margarine, melted
In a medium saucepan, heat milk, sugar, 1/3 cup butter and salt until butter almost melts. Remove the saucepan from heat. Cool to lukewarm (105 degree F to 115 degree F).
In a small bowl dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Let stand until bubbly.
Stir in as much remaining flour as you can with a wooden spoon. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough of the remaining flour to form a moderately soft dough thats smooth and elastic (3 to 5 minutes total).
Place in a greased bowl; turn once to grease surface. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled (about 1 hour).
Punch dough down. Turn out onto lightly floured surface. Divide in half. Cover; let rest 10 minutes. Divide into 24 portions and shape into rolls.
Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to wire rack to cool. Brush with melted butter while warm.
