Ingredients:  
3 cups warm water
2 tablespoons +1/2 teaspoon yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup milk
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 tablespoon +1/4 teaspoon salt
10 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup shortening

Directions:
Directions:
Add yeast and sugar to warm water and let sit for 3 to 5 minutes. Add melted butter ( Cooled), Milk, eggs and salt to yeast mixture. In a large bowl combine flour and sugar. Stir until combined. Using your hand crumble shortening into flour until it is barely noticeable. Pour liquid yeast mixture into flour mixture. Using a large wooden spoon, stir until well combined. When dough starts to come together, ditch the spoon and use your hands to knead the dough for approximately two minutes until it comes together in a nice ball. Place dough in a warm area, covered, until it doubles in size. ( I do this in my oven. While I mix the Dough I heat the oven to 195F. Then I turn the oven off right before I put the covers dough in. This step cuts back on time dramatically. Dough will be doubled in 15 to 30 minutes. ) After dough has doubled in size, punch it down and knead with your hands one more time for two minutes. If dough is a bit sticky sprinkle it with flour as needed. Prepare pans and form dough into 2 inch balls and place onto cooking sheets. I like rolls to be touching so I have to pull them apart when they are done. If you dont like that ,place them at least 1 to 2 inches apart on your cookie sheet. I cook my close together in 9 x 13 pans. When dough is formed into balls and placed on pans, cover and allow to rise until almost doubled again. I put my pans on top of the oven while it is preheating and this step usually only takes 15 to 20 minutes. Bake at 400 for 12 to 14 minutes.

This dough also makes excellent cinnamon rolls. The recipe is large enough that you can do 24 rolls and 20 to 24 cinnamon rolls.
