1 c. sugar
1 c. shortening

Directions:
Pour boiling water over the sugar, shortening, salt, and powdered milk in a large bowl. Soften yeast in separate bowl with 1/2 c. warm water. When milk mixture cools to warm, begin adding the flour into the milk mixture in any large breadmixer, Bosh or Kitchenaid. After about 8 c. of flour, add the yeast mixture. Continue adding flour until you have a soft elastic dough. Put dough back into the original large bowl, cover with a towel and let rise for 1-2 hours until double in size. Scrape out onto a floured board, divide into 8 balls of equal size, roll each ball out into a long rectangular shape and then roll up tightly like a jelly roll. Place in greased medium size loaf pans, let raise again 1-2 hours depending on the warmth of your kitchen. Bake at 350 F for 30-45 minutes or light brown on sides and bottom. Turn out of pans and lightly brush with margarine, butter, or bacon drippings.
