Ingredients:  
1 quart whole milk
1 cup sugar

5 cup + 3 cup plain flour
1 Tablespoon salt
1 Tablespoon baking powder

Directions:
Directions:
Melt milk, sugar and Crisco on boiler on top of stove on low heat. After the mixture is melted remove from stove and allow to cool to 105 to 115 degrees. Nana knew the right temp by touch. After mixture is cooled, mix water and yeast together and add to the crisco/sugar mixture. Slowly add 5 cups flour; mix on low using upright mixer (mixture will be lumpy looking). Pour into a large bowl (I use my largest tupperware bowl) and cover with a cloth. Place in a warm dark place, I use the oven with a pan of warm water placed below the bowl. Allow dough to rise for approx. 1 hour, until doubled in size. Remove and add 3 additional cups of flour and baking powder, and salt ;gently mix with large spoon. May refrigerate at this point or roll out. Roll to 3/8 in and cut out with a glass; dip in melted butter and fold over on a ungreased baking pan. Cover with cloth until doubled in size. Bake at 400 degrees until lightly browned. If I'm going to store the entire recipe I oil a 2 gallon ziploc bag and keep in refrigerator until ready to use. Remove from refrigerator about an hour prior to cutting out.

Personal Notes:
The only time I've ever ruined this recipe was if the water was too hot when I added the yeast. I use a thermometer.
