Directions:
Mix dough in the early afternoon. Combine water, sugar, salt and butter in a saucepan, bring to a boil then let cool. Dissolve yeast in warm water, cup, with a pinch of sugar; into the cooled liquid mix the dissolved yeast when it has risen, beaten eggs, and 4 cups of the flour. Blend at low speed with mixer, add the remaining flour, place in greased bowl, let rise 4 to 5 hours. Punch down and let rise 2 to 3 hours and shape into buns or rolls. Place on greased baking pans. Don't place buns to close together. Grease top of each roll and cover each pan with plastic wrap making sure ends of wrap are tucked under pan and rolls have space to rise. Let rolls sit overnight. At 7 or 8 a.m. bake in 350 oven until brown. These rolls freeze well. Makes about 4 dozen.
