1/2 cup each sugar and shortening
1 Tbsp. salt
2 cups boiling water
2 packages active dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup warm water (about 110)
2 eggs, well beaten
7 1/2 to 8 cups all purpose flour, unsifted

In a large bowl, combine the 1/3 cup sugar, shortening, salt and boiling water; cool to lukewarm. Dissolve yeast and the 1 teaspoon sugar in the 1/4 cup water, cover and set in warm place until bubbly. Combine yeast mixture with lukewarm mixture; stir in eggs.

Add 4 cups of flour, beating well with a spoon; then gradually stir in as much of the remaining flour as the dough will absorb, mixing well. Place in a greased bowl. Cover; chill at least 3 hours or up to 24 hours.

To bake, divide dough in half. With greased hands, shape each into a smooth loaf. Place in greased 5 x 9 loaf pan; cover and let rise in a warm place until almost double, about 2 hours.

Bake in a 350 oven, 30 to 35 minutes or until bread sounds hollow when tapped. Turn out on rack. Makes 2 loaves.
