DId lots of searching and couldn't find this one posted yet. It's incredible! Soft and buttery and easy to make. Loved it!
- 2 (1/4 ounce) packages active dry yeast
- 1⁄4 cup warm water (110 to 115 )
- 2 cups milk
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon shortening
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 6 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour

- 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.
- Add the milk, sugar, shortening, salt and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth.
- Stir in enough of the remaining flour to form a soft dough.
- Turn out on a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top.
- Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
- Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into fourths.
- Divide each portion into 12 pieces.
- In a shallow bowl, combine the butter, parsley and garlic powder.
- Shape each piece into a ball; dip in the butter mixture.
- Place in two greased 9-in. x 5-in. x 3-in. loaf pans.
- Pour any remaining butter mixture over dough.
- Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
- Bake at 375° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.

We had this last night with spaghetti and it was out of this world! I'm very new to baking breads and this was not near as hard as I thought it would be. I halved the recipe and it worked out wonderfully. Thanks for the great recipe!
I used to make this in my high school home ec. class, and have never been able to find the recipe. This is right on the money and absolutley delicious!! Thanks so much!
