Directions:
Scald milk. Put sugar, salt & butter into mixing bowl and pour hot milk over; stir well and cool to lukewarm. Soften yeast in lukewarm water and add to other ingredients. Add 2 c. flour and mix well. Add eggs and beat mixture well. Add more flour to make a dough that is soft but stiff enough to be handled on a board. Turn out onto lightly floured board and knead dough until smooth and elastic and does not stick to board or hands. Form into a ball and placed in greased bowl and cover with a dish towel and let rise in a warm place until double in size - about 1 1/2 hours. Punch dough down and form into desired shape.

For pecan or carmel rolls, divide dough into thirds. Roll out each third to about 1/4 in thick rectangle. Spead butter over dough. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Roll jelly roll fashion. Cut into 3/4 in segments and place in a greased round cake pan that has a cooked mixture of melted butter, brown sugar. lt. corn syrup and nuts on the bottom. Cover and let rise about 1 hr. Bake in pre-heated 350 degree over 20-25 minutes or until brown on top. Remove from oven and flip rolls over onto plate.
