Peggy's Ranch Rolls

If you are looking for a wonderful roll recipe for the holidays, look no further. Peggy is known for many wonderful recipes, but her delicious homemade rolls are always on the top of my list. They are soft and buttery, and the perfect accompaniment to any meal.  

2 tbs dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup warm milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 tsp salt
4 cups flour

Dissolve yeast in water in a large bowl, let stand 5 minutes. Beat eggs well and add to yeast. Scald your milk and stir in sugar and salt. Let cool until warm. Add to yeast mixture. Add half of your flour, beat well with a fork. Gradually add the remaining flour to the dough. Keep the dough rather sticky. Lift the dough out of the bowl and grease the bowl on all sides. Knead the dough for about 2 minutes. Cover and let rise 1 hour. Punch down dough, knead for 15 seconds. Then let rise for another hour. Form into roll shapes and place in buttered pans. Let rise for another hour. Bake at 375 for 12-17 minutes or until light golden brown. Yields 1 1/2 dozen, but Peggy always doubles or triples the recipe because they get eaten so quickly!
