Butter Rolls

I have had a lot of requests for this recipe to be made available - so here it is - enjoy!

2 Yeast Packets
2 cups lukewarm water
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
6 beaten eggs
1 1/2 tsp salt
8 to 10 cups flour

-Mix yeast with 2 tablespoons of sugar and 2 cups of lukewarm water
-Add melted butter, sugar, and beaten eggs.  Mix well.
-Sift flour and salt - add to above gradually.  The mixture will be very sticky.  
-Cover with damp cloth.  Let rise for 2 hours.
-Stir down and put in refrigerator overnight, covered with damp cloth.
-When you are ready to use the dough flour your hands and take out what out what you need.  Roll out to 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick about the size of a 9 inch pie.  Brush with melted butter.  Cut like you are cutting a pie.  Roll up each piece starting with the wide end.  Place on cookie sheet and cover.  
-Let rolls rise for 4 - 5 hours.  That is what makes them light. 
-Bake at 375 for 10 minutes.  
-After baking brush with melted butter.  

Each recipe yields about 60 medium rolls.
