Ingredients:  
2 T. active dry yeast (two packages)
1 T. granulated sugar
1/2 c. warm water (100 to 110 degrees)
1/4 c. butter (1/2 stick)
2 c. warm milk
6 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. melted butter
Egg wash: 1 egg beaten with 2 T. milk

Directions:
Directions:
Dissolve yeast and sugar in the warm water and allow to set about 10 minutes. Melt 1/2 stick of butter in the warm milk. Mix yeast with milk mixture. Mix in flour, one cup at a time (flour could be adjusted at this time. If sticky dough, add a little more flour; if dry do not add all 6 cups).
Form dough into a ball and place in a greased bowl and cover. Set dough aside for about 1 hour in a warm place out of the breeze, or until double in size.
Punch down down and turn out onto a lightly floured board, knead lightly. Allow to rest for several minutes then start separating rolls. The pinches should be 1oz. or just smaller than a golf ball. Form into balls and place on a sheet pan or place in a roll pan. Brush with the melted butter and allow to rise again until doubled in size. Brush with egg wash and bake in a preheated 350 oven until lightly browned or about 20 minutes. Check on rolls for doneness. If cooked all the way through, place on cooling rack.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I like to make saw tooth rolls with this bread. I roll the dough into ovals and make a little clip with a pair of scissors along one side then let it rest. These little cuts make a roll look like a saw blade. A nice and little different presentation.
