Ingredients:

  • 2 packages (2 scant tablespoons) dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (105° to 115°)
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 5 to 51/2 cups flour
  • 3 eggs

Instructions:

Sprinkle yeast over water; set aside to proof. In a small saucepan heat milk, shortening, sugar, and salt until warm (shortening does not need to melt). Pour into large bowl of mixer; beat in 2 cups flour until well mixed. Add yeast mixture and eggs; beat, scraping bowl occasionally. Add 1/2 cup additional flour and beat well; add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 8 to 10 minutes, until smooth and satiny. Place in a greased bowl; turn to grease top. Cover dough and proceed with desired recipe variations.
