DIRECTIONS

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine 3 cups of flour and the yeast.
  • In a medium saucepan, heat the milk, butter, brown sugar and salt until very warm (115F to 120F) and butter is almost melted, stirring constantly.
  • Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture along with the eggs.
  • Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 1/2 minute then beat on high speed for 3 minutes.
  • Using a wooden spoon, stir in remaining flour to make a soft dough.
  • Place dough in a greased bowl and grease top of dough lightly.
  • Cover and let rise in a warm place until double (1 to 1 1/2 hours-less with Rapid Rise yeast).
  • Stir dough down and divide into thirds (about 1 pound each).
  • Place each portion in a 1-gallon ziplock bag, leaving ample space for dough to expand.
  • Chill at least 2 hours before using.
  • ***Eachportion will make a dozen cinnamon or dinner rolls or 1 pizza crust.
