1 cup milk, scalded
1/2 cup sugar
1 package dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter
3 eggs, well beaten

Scald milk and cool to lukewarm. Use a small portion to dissolve yeast in. Pour remainder of scalded milk over butter, sugar and salt. Stir until mixed and butter is soft or melted. Add half the flour, beat until smooth; then add the softened yeast. Beat it in. Add well-beaten eggs and blend well. Add the remaining flour, mixing well until it is a soft dough. Cover the ball of dough and let rise until doubled. Punch down, divide into four equal balls. Roll each ball into a 9-inch circle and cut into eight pie-shaped pieces. Roll each piece from edge to center. Place closely on a cookie sheet and brush with butter. Let rise until light. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
