Scald milk; stir in sugar, salt and margarine. Cool to lukewarm.
Measure warm water into large warm bowl. Sprinkle or crumble in yeast; stir until dissolved.
Add lukewarm milk mixture, eggs and 2 cups of flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough.
Turn out onto lightly floured board; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes.
Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover; let rise in warm place, free from draft, until doubled in bulk, about 30 minutes.
Punch down. Turn out on lightly floured board. Proceed according to directions for any shape. [Grandma means like crescent, cloverleaf, etc. They will need to rise again after shaped, probably another 30 minutes. I would guess that they should be baked at about 400 F for around 15 minutes.].
