Dissolve yeast in warm water in large bowl. Stir in milk, sugar, salt, eggs, shortening and 3 1/2 c of the flour. Beat until smooth. Mix in enough remaining flour to make dough easy to handle.

Cover; let rise until double, 1 hour. Place oven rack in lowest position. Heat over to 425 degrees. Bake until loaves sound hollow when tapped, 25 - 30 minutes.

Personal Notes:
This well used recipe was cut from a Gold Medal flour sack so credit goes to General Mills for the recipe; but, credit goes to Mom, an experienced bread maker, for providing us with homemade bread. I can still see the dough rising above the rim of the large yellow crock signifying success would soon bring bread to the table.
