Directions:
Preheat oven to350

Beat 3 eggs and add sugar. Add a few ice cubes to cool to lukewarm. You should have a total of about 2 cups of mixture. Maybe a little more.

Add yeast to above mixture.
Put 6 cups flour in a large bowl. Make a hole in the middle and pour in sugar/yeast mixture. Mix gently. Mixture will be sticky.

Pour into a greased glass bowl. Cover with greased plastic wrap or towel. Let rise. Work down. Let rise again. Work down and make into balls a little larger than a golf ball. Put into a 10 x 13 greased pan. You should have 12 to 15 balls in the pan. Let rise again.

Bake at 350 about 15- 20 minutes until brown. Let cool slightly. Break apart. Put back in oven at low temp (200 to 250) for about 2 hours to dry out.

A favorite from the German side of my family. Excellent with coffee. The bread is very to Biscotti, but much cheaper! Enjoy!
