Feather Light Rolls

This is yet another of my favorite roll recipes. I came across the recipe when Duane's Grandma copied her recipe for rolls for me out of a church cookbook and they were on the same page. I had never made overnight rolls before and decided to give them a try. They were some of the softest rolls I'd ever had and so I make them regularly now. They're also great because you make the batter the night before and then they rise in the fridge overnight.

Featherlight Overnight Rolls
Joyce Walton

1 Tbsp. yeast

1 Tbsp. sugar

1/2 c. warm water

1 cup milk

1/2 c. sugar

1/2 c. margarine or butter

3/4 tsp. salt

3 eggs, well beaten

4 -6 cups flour

Mix yeast, 1 tablespoon sugar and warm water together. Set aside. Scald milk; cool. Combine salt, sugar and butter or margarine; add to milk. Add eggs and yeast mixture. Add 4 cups flour; mix well. At this point if it is really sticky just add more flour until it is a soft, but not too sticky dough. Put in greased bowl covered with plastic wrap overnight. Roll and cut out. Let rise until doubled. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Brush with butter when done.
