1/4 c butter, cubed
1 T salt
1 pkg active dry yeast
3 large eggs
1/4 c warm water 110 to 115 degrees
5 1/2 to 6 c flour divided

In a small saucepan, heat the milk, 1/3 cup sugar, butter and salt; stir until sugar is dissolved. Set aside. In a small bowl, combine the yeast, warm water and remaining sugar; let stand for 5 minutes. In a large mixing bowl, combine the milk and yeast mixtures, eggs and 3 cups flour; beat until smooth.

Punch dough down; divide in half. Pat or roll each portion to fit a greased 9-in. round baking pan. With a fork, pierce tops; sprinkle with topping. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Remove from pans and cool on wire racks.
For filling-
1/4 c flour
3/4 c milk
3/4 c softened butter
3/4 c sugar
3/4 tsp vanilla
3 T confectioners sugar
