1 c. scalded milk
1/4 lb. butter
1 T. dry yeast, dissolved in 1/4 c. warm water
1 T. sugar, dissolved with yeast
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 t. salt
4 c. flour (approximate)
Beat all thoroughly in mixer. (Or, do it by hand! I think that was the secret to my best batch ever -- light as air.)
Let dough rise, covered, in the refrigerator overnight.
The next day, divide the dough in 2 portions. Roll each portion into a circle and cut into 16 pie-shaped pieces. Brush with melted butter. Roll each piece up, from the large edge to the small edge, and place on a buttered baking sheet.
Brush tops of rolls with melted butter. Cover with a dish towel and let rise for 4-5 hours. (The rising time is not critical with these -- they can probably rise up to 6 hours.) Bake for 15-20 minutes in a 375 degree oven.
Makes 32 rolls. (this recipe doubles well)
