Sweet Yeast Dough

admin's picture
Ingredients
  Milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Vegetable shortening 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
  Active dry yeast 1⁄2 Ounce (2 envelopes)
  Warm water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Eggs 4 , beaten
  Sifted all purpose flour 4 1⁄2 Cup (72 tbs)
Directions

1. Combine milk, sugar, salt and shortening in saucepan. Heat just until shortening is melted; cool to lukewarm.
2. Sprinkle yeast into very warm water in a large bowl. ("Very warm water" should feel comfortably warm when dropped on wrist.) Add lukewarm milk mixture, eggs and 2 cups of the flour; beat until smooth. Add just enough of remaining flour to make soft dough.
3. Turn out onto lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes, using only as much flour as needed to keep dough from sticking.
4. Place in large greased bowl; turn to bring greased side up. Cover. Let rise in warm place, away from drafts, 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until double in bulk.
5. Punch dough down; knead a few times; let rest 5 minutes. Shape into butterscotch-nut buns, sugar buns or crumb cakes or buns.
