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!

- 1⁄4 cup warm water (110 to 115 )
- 2 cups milk

Directions See How It's Made
- 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.
- Cool for 10 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks. Serve warm.
