Ingredients:  
1 pkg dry yeast
1/4 c. water
2 c. milk, scalded

71/2-8 c, flour
2 eggs
3/4 c. sugar

Directions:
Directions:
Soften yeast in warm water (110). Pour scalded milk over 1/2 c. sugar, the shortening , and salt; stir to dissolve sugar. Cool to lukewarm.
Add 3 cups of the flour; mix well. Stir in softened yeast and eggs; beat well. Add enough of the remaining flour to make a soft dough. Turn out on lightly floured surface. Cover and let rise 10 minutes. Knead till smooth and elastic (8-10 min). Place in lightly greased bowl, turning once to grease surface. Cover and let rise in warm place till doubled in size (1 1/2-2 hr).
Punch down and let rise again till almost double (about 1 hr). Punch down and divide dough in half. Cover and let rest 10 min. Roll each half in 15x7" rectangle, about 1/2" thick. Mix 3/4 c. sugar and the cinnamon. Reserve 2 tbsp mixture; sprinkle remainder over rectangles of dough. Sprinkle about 2 teaspoons water over each; smooth with spatula.
Roll each as for jelly roll, beginning with narrow side. Seal long edge. Place sealed edge down in 2 greased loaf pans. Let rise till almost double (45-60 min.) Just before baking, brush loaves with soft butter and sprinkle with remaining cinnamon-sugar.
Bake in 375 oven for 35-40 min. or till done. (The loaf will sound hollow when tapped on the top with your finger.) If crust browns too fast, cover with aluminum foil last 5-10 minutes of baking. Turn out of pans and cool on rack.
