Ingredients:  
* 1/4 cup sugar
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1 cup milk, scalded
* 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
* 1 package active dry yeast
* 1/3 cup warm water
* 1 egg, beaten
* About 4 1/2 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
* 2 tablespoons melted butter

Directions:
Directions:
Stir sugar, salt, and butter into milk; cool to lukewarm. Place warm water in a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle with yeast and stir to dissolve. Add warm milk mixture and egg; blend well. Stir in 2 to 3 cups flour and beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. Mix in additional flour about 1/2 cup at a time until a soft dough forms. The dough should be soft and sticky but not stick to the sides of the bowl. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes.

Place dough in a large greased bowl, turning to cover dough with grease. Cover with damp towel and let rise in a warm, draft-free area until doubled in bulk, about 45 minutes to one hour. Punch down dough. Shape into rolls (1 1/2-inch balls) and place in two greased 8- or 9-inch cake pans or on a large baking sheet about 1/2 inch apart. Cover with damp towel. Let rise until doubled in bulk, about 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush with melted butter and bake for 15 minutes.

Personal Notes:
My Great Aunt Teagarden, who we often called "Dogie", (she married the well-known Jazz musician Jack Teagarden, who performed with the likes of Louis Armstrong and others) used to bake wonderful yeast rolls like these. Of course, she probably got the original recipe from my Grandmother, Ruby, (her sister), as they all grew up together and shared many of the same recipes, of course. Women had more time to make breads from scratch in those days! Since I haven't yet mentioned her in this cookbook....I dedicate this family-shared recipe to her, in fond memory.
