Ingredients:  
1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water (110 to 115 degrees)
1 tablespoon plus 1/2 cup sugar divided
3/4 cup warm milk (110 to 115 degrees)
3 eggs, lightly beaten

Directions:
Directions:
In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add 1 tablespoon sugar, let stand for 5 minutes. Add the milk, eggs, butter, salt and remaining sugar. Stir in enough flour to form a stiff dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 - 8 minutes.
Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 to 1-1/2 hours. Punch dough down. Divide into thirds. Make a ball with each third and roll into a 12 inch circle; cut each circle into eight wedges. (I use a pizza cutter). Brush with melted butter; roll up wedges from the wide end and place, pointed end down, 2 inches apart on a greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
Bake at 375 for 10 -12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks.
