    1 1/4   c            Milk -- scalded
    2       ts           Butter or regular margarine
    2       pk           Active dry yeast -- or
      1/4   c            Lukewarm water -- 110 deg. f.
    2       ts           Butter or margarine -- melted
    3       ts           Sugar
      3/4   ts           Salt
    2       ts           Active dry yeast -- bulk
    4 1/2   c            Unbleached flour
   Pour the scalded milk over the sugar, 2 tbls of butter
   and salt in a mixing bowl.  Cool to lukewarm.
   Sprinkle the yeast over the lukewarm water and stir to
   dissolve.  Add 2 cups of flour, and the yeast mixture
   to the milk mixture.  Beat, with an electric mixer on
   medium speed, until smooth, about 2 minutes.
   Gradually add enough of the remaining flour to make a
   soft dough, then cover and let rest for 15 minutes.
   Knead the dough a few times on a lightly floured
   surface until it is no longer sticky and roll out to a
   1/2-inch thickness. Cut into rounds, using a floured
   biscuit cutter. Brush the rounds with the remaining 2
   Tbls of melted butter and crease each roll in the
   center with the dull edge of a knife. Fold the rolls
   over on the crease and press the edges together
   lightly.  Place on greased baking sheets and cover.
   Let rise in a warm place until almost doubled, about
   30 minutes.  Bake in a preheated 400 degree F. oven
   for 10 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove from the
   baking sheets and cool on wire racks. NOTE: These
   rolls are almost a must at the Holiday dinners coming
   up shortly. Restaurants and most older cooks make it a
   tradition to serve them.
