2 cups Whole Milk
1/2 cup + 1 Tablespoon Sugar, divided
1/3 cup (5 1/3 Tablespoons) Butter
2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
2 packages Active Dry Yeast (or 4 1/2 teaspoons)
2/3 cup Warm Water (105-115 degrees)
8 cups All-Purpose Flour
3 Eggs, beaten
2.While the milk mixture is cooling, dissolve the yeast and 1 tablespoon of sugar in the warm water. Let stand about 10 minutes. (after the 10 minutes, the yeast should be very bubbly and foamy)
3.In a large mixing bowl, combine 3 cups flour and milk mixture. Beat on low for 30 seconds, scraping sides of bowl. Add yeast mixture and beat on high for 3 minutes. Add in beaten eggs. Then stir in remaining 5 cups of flour to make a soft dough. *NOTE- The dough will be very soft and coming away from the sides of the bowl, but it will still be sticky. Dont worry about this. It will firm up a little during the rising process)
4.Place the bowl in a warm place and cover with a clean kitchen towel. Allow to rise for 1 hour.
5.Punch down dough, and turn dough onto a lightly floured clean surface. Divide in half. Spray 2 9x13 glass pans with cooking spray.
6.Roll first portion of dough into a rectangle and then cut into 12 equal-sized pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and then place in prepared pans. Repeat with remaining dough in the second pan. Cover pans with clean kitchen towels, and let rise 30-45 minutes.
|this is before the rolls sat to rise.|
7.Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden-brown.
