2 pkgs. active dry yeast
1 1/2 cup milk, scalded
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. salt
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup shortening
About 7 cups flour (I always use Robin Hood)
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add sugar, salt and shortening to scalded milk.
When cool, add yeast and eggs to milk mixture, then add 2 1/2 cups flour
and beat until smooth with mixer. Then gradually add rest of flour.
Knead dough until smooth. Place in greased bowl and cover.
Let rise until double in bulk, punch down and let rise again.
Shape into buns or rolls. Let rise and bake in 350 degree oven
for about 20 minutes, depending on size of buns or rolls.

Caramel for Rolls

1/3 cup margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp. white syrup
Heat in small sauce pan and stir well until blended.
This is enough for a 9" square pan. You can double this or use
1 1/2 times this recipe for a 9x13 pan.

Pour caramel in pan. Top with cinnamon rolls, either frozen or made from about
1/3 of the recipe for Basic Sweet Dough (above).
To make cinnamon rolls from sweet dough recipe, roll about 1/3
of the recipe into a 1/4 inch thick rectangle. Spread with soft margarine
and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll up tightly
beginning at wide end. Seal edges well. Cut into 12 pieces for a
9x13" pan and lay cut down side down on the caramel. Let raise until
double and bake at 350 degrees for 25 or 30 minutes until brown.
