"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Directions:
Scald milk. Pour warm milk over soft butter, sugar and salt; stir until melted, in mixer bowl. Add yeast and cool water. Stir in 2 c. flour. Cover and let stand for approx. 25 min., until airy.

Stir in 2 cups flour, cup at a time. Mixer should be on level 2, using flat beater. When sides are clean, continue adding a few T at a time and incorporate completely. While still soft, turn into a greased bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm oven until doubled, 1to 1 hour.

Punch down and let rest about 20 min. Divide in half. Roll out to inch thick and cut into circles. Brush with melted butter and fold in half. Let rise approx. 45 min. to an hour (doubled).

Bake at 450 degrees for 10 15 minutes. (If freezing, bake at 425 degrees)

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
From the leftover dough I make cinnamon rolls. Roll the dough into a rectangle and spread with melted butter and a mixture of brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon and a bit of salt. Roll and slice about an inch thick. Bake at the same temperature as the rolls.
