Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
2 cups scalded Milk
1 cup (2 cubes) real butter
1/3 cup sugar
3 tsp salt

Mix above ingredients in large bowl. Be sure to use cold butter from the fridge and cut into 2 inch chunks to cool the milk and melt the butter.

Once Milk is cool add
2 beaten eggs to the above ingredients and mix well

cup warm water (less 2 Tablespoons)
2 Pkgs of regular rise yeast
1 tsp. sugar

Directions:
Directions:
Add yeast and sugar to warm water and let yeast dissolve and activate prior to adding to bowl of above ingredients then stir well.

Slowly add 5 to 6 cups of flour to above ingredients (use good bread flour) stir and then use kitchen aid mixer or large bowl to beat / kneed dough for about 3-5 minutes. Keep dough soft!

Dough will be a bit sticky but do not use more than 6 1/2 cups of flour try to only use 6 cups but can use a bit more if the mixture is wet.

Brush dough with butter then leave covered bowl in warm place to allow dough to rise until about double in size, approximately 20 minutes (you can put dough in slightly warmed oven but do not leave oven on)

Once dough has doubled in size punch down and kneed dough for 3-5 minutes. You can use butter on your hands to keep the dough from sticking to you as you kneed and then form dough into loaves or rolls.

It's best to place rolls in or on a plain metal pan or cooking sheet; insulated pans do not work well. Brush top of bread with butter and then let rolls or bread rise to about double the size. Apx 20 minutes to rise.

Bake bread in pre-heated oven at 400 degrees for about 14-15 minutes for rolls (24 rolls) Or 15-20 minutes for loaves (makes 2 loaves)

Brush top of hot bread with butter as soon as removing bread from oven to keep crust soft.

Personal Notes:
This recipe was given to me by my mother-in-law, Julie. She has tweaked the recipe over the years to make these the softest, chewiest rolls possible. She uses this recipe every time she makes rolls for family dinners. If she doesn't make them, she gets in trouble with the rest of us!
