Homemade Rolls

2 pkgs of yeast
1/2 cup warm water (bath water temp.)
1 Tbls sugar
1 cup milk
1/4 cup margarine
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs, beaten
3 1/2-4 cups flour

Dissolve yeast in water for 5 minutes with 1 tablespoon of sugar.
Scald milk with margarine to melt; cool.
Put in mixer or large bowl.
Add sugar, eggs, salt.
Add yeast and flour. Dough will be a little sticky.
Cover, let rise 1 hour.
Roll out.
Cut with glass, pat with melted butter; fold in half and place on greased cookie sheet.
Rise until double, about 1- 1 1/2 hours.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12-20 minutes.

Makes 2-3 dozen
Can also make dough a day ahead and refrigerate.
Let rise for 2 hours before rolling out.

***You can knead the dough a little but the less you "work" the dough the lighter and fluffier your rolls will be.
