|ROLLS FOR A CROWD - BASIC DOUGH|
2 c. scalded milk
2 sticks soft butter
3 tbsp. yeast (1 tbsp. = 1 pkg.)
1 c. warm water
3/4 tbsp. salt
1 c. sugar
6 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. sugar
Approximately 10 c. flour
Add milk to sugar and butter. Beat eggs. Add yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar to warm water. When butter and sugar are dissolved, add egg and dissolved yeast. Fill sifter with flour and salt. Beat enough flour into milk mixture until firm enough to knead. Knead enough flour in to make a smooth soft dough. Put dough into greased bowl. Let rise until double in bulk. Shape and let rise again. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown.
Divide basic dough into 6 equal parts. Roll into rectangle shape. Spread 1 cup raisin filling (recipe follows) on dough. Roll dough as for jelly roll. Form into circle on oiled pan. With scissors, cut dough every 1 1/2 inch. Cutting 3/4 way through, turn pieces on side. Brush entire top with slightly beaten whole egg. Then decorate with sliced almonds. Dribble icing over top after baked and cooled.
This recipe is very versatile. It can be shaped into hamburger buns, wiener buns, sweet rolls or Parkerhouse rolls.
