Ingredients

1 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup fat
1 cake or package dry yeast
1/4 cup lukewarm water
3 to 4 cups flour
1 to 2 beaten eggs

Instructions

Scald milk. Put sugar, fat and salt in mixing bowl and pour hot liquid over them. Stir well and let cool. Soften yeast in lukewarm water and add to rest of ingredients. Add eggs. Add flour gradually until dough is stiff enough to handle on a board. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until it is elastic and does not stick to board. Place dough in greased bowl, grease top, cover and let rise until double. Form dough in desired shape (cinnamon rolls or dinner rolls). Bake at 350 degrees. Don't overbake.
