In a large mixing bowl, combine remaining water, sugar, salt, and eggs. Mix thoroughly with whisk.
Add 2 cups of the flour and mix thouroughly. Add yeast mixture and stir well. Add remaining 2 cups of flour and mix thoroughly. Cover bowl and place in a warm place to rise. Approximately 2 hours or until double in size.

Punch dough down and roll out onto a floured surface.(DO NOT KNEAD THE DOUGH !!!) Lightly roll the dough to about 3/4" to 1" thick. Using a cutter or drinking glass; about 2" to 2-1/2" in diameter, cut rolls and place in a 9" x 14" glass pan, lightly sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Arrange rolls 3 wide and 5 to 6 long, being careful not to crowd them. Allow to rise again until double or 2 hours.

Bake 12-16 minutes in oven at 400 degrees (375 for metal pan) or until golden brown. Remove from oven and brush with melted butter. Serve immediately.

Personal Notes:
This recipe was used/devloped because of the higher prices of sugar and other ingredients during the depression. It is a minimal ingredient recipe, but produces absolutely great dinner rolls.
