"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Mark Mansfield


1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup milk, scalded
1 pkg (1 tablespoon) dry yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup lukewarm water
2 teaspoons salt
4 cups flour
3 eggs


Add butter and 1/4 sugar to hot milk. Cool. Combine yeast, 1 Tablespoon sugar and lukewarm water. Let stand 5 minutes to soften yeast.

Add salt to flour. Combine milk and yeast mixtures and add 1 cup flour. Add eggs and beat well.
Continue adding flour gradually beating until smooth after each addition. This is a soft dough and most or all can be handled by the electric mixer.

Cover bowl and place out of draft until dough rises to triple in amount. Punch down Cover again and place in frig overnight or until thoroughly chilled. When ready for use (dough will keep well up to five days). Remove from frig and roll and shape while cold. You can handle a much softer dough if it is chilled. Place on greased pans. Brush dough with melted butter. Let rise for 1 to 11/2 hours. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes or until desired doneness.

This dough can be left to rise for 5 to 6 hours without doing it any harm. It's a good recipe to use for church suppers or parties when you don't know how long rolls will have stand before you can bake them.
