Hamburger Buns

Hamburger Buns (Shari Price)

2-3 Tbsp dry yeast
1 cup warm water
2 cups scalded milk
1/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup shortening
2 tsp salt
2 eggs, beaten
7 cups flour

Scald milk; add sugar and salt and shortening. Cool. Dissolve yeast in warm water. Take 1/2 the flour and add to the milk mixture. Then add the eggs and yeast mixtures and make batter in bowl; let rise. Then mix in remaining flour to make a soft dough. Let rise 45 minutes – 1 hour. Mix down and let rise again. Make into rolls or buns. For buns roll out 1/4 inch or so thick and cut with a large or small mayonnaise jar lid dipped in flour. Let rise and bake at 375 about 15 minutes or till golden.

(Mary's note: I don't let it rise again the 2nd time because sometimes they get too fluffy)
