Lion House Rolls


2 packages of yeast

1/2 cup warm water

1 1/3 cup milk, scalded and cooled

2 tablespoons butter

4 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

2 cups flour

Combine 2 packages yeast and 1/2 cup warm water and set aside. In large mixing bowl combine remaining ingredients, mix until smooth. Stir in yeast. Add 3 cups flour and mix, knead until smooth and no longer sticky (you may need more flour). Place dough in greased bowl, cover with towel and set in warm place to raise until double in size (about 1 hour). Roll out and shape rolls, place on greased baking sheet.(for extra flavor, melt 1/2 stick of butter and pour onto baking sheet before placing shaped rolls) Cover rolls with towel and raise for 30 minutes. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned. Brush tops with melted butter,remove from baking sheet and cool on wire rack.

I got this recipe from Laurie over at Treasure the Little Things. I've had these rolls, and I can't even tell you how delicious they are!
