"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Ingredients:  
1 1/2 cubes butter
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 1/2 packages quick rising yeast
6-8 cups flour
Grandma Richardson's Goop
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup white syrup
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup milnot
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix well with a spoon.

Directions:
Directions:
Cook milk and butter in microwave until scalded (usually 2-3 minutes on high). Place in large bowl. Add sugar, salt, allow to cool.
In a separate container (I use a 2 cup measuring cup) using luke warm water, add 1/2 cup of water, yeast and 2 tsp. sugar. Stir, let this rest. Once it has risen, stir it back down and add to the cooling milk/butter mixture. Beat 2 eggs in the measuring cup and add to milk/butter/yeast mixture. Stir well, now begin adding flour until the mixture is no longer wet and sticky, but don't let it get too dry either. Kneed this either in the bowl or place on a lightly floured surface, just for a minute. Back into bowl, place towel over it and allow it to rise in a non-drafty place, preferable near a fireplace (with a fire in it!). This usually takes 2 hours, then punch it down and form bread, rolls or cinnamon rolls. For rolls, just make large balls and place in a 9 x 13 pan which is sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. For cinnamon rolls, roll out on a lightly floured surface until 1/8 inch thick. Melt butter and brush over the entire surface. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon over entire surface. Roll up and then cut into 2 inch rolls. Set these inside of a dutch over (or we call ours the roasting pans) and again let rise until doubled. Once they have risen add grandma's goop over them and bake 25-35 minuets at 350 degrees. Remove from oven and let them sit for 5 minutes in the pan, then get a beautiful plate, set it on top of the pan and invert the pan on top of the plate, good hot or cold! The goop recipe makes 2 pans of rolls and the entire bread recipe will make 1 loaf of bread and 2 pans of rolls. Sometimes, I'll freeze the bread in the bread pan before I let it rise a second time and cover it well with wrap. Then I'll take it out for dinner in the morning and just let it thaw and rise all day and it's ready to bake for supper. For dinner rolls, bake 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes, then get a stick of butter and rub it over them while they're still hot. For bread, bake 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, do the stick of butter thing with the bread too!
