½ cup warm water
3 tbsp. Yeast
Dissolve the yeast in the water.
1 ½ cup hot water
1 regular sized can evaporated milk
1 ½ cup sugar
2 tsp. Salt
6 – 8 cups flour
Mix all together. Add just enough flour to make a light weight dough. (The more flour, the heavier the roll.) (I get my dough just past the sticky stage and then work in what additional flour for that soft dough.) Roll out and cut with a glass (round). Put a little bit of butter in the center of the roll and fold in half. Put on greased cookie sheet, cover with a towel and let raise for about two hours. Bake at 375 for about 15 minutes and when taken out of oven, baste with butter.
One batch will make two of the district size cookie sheets full of rolls, probably about 3 dozen, depending on the size of the glass
