Heavenly MFBC yeast rolls

These are one of my fondest memories from church as a kid. I'm serious! Marietta First Baptist Church had the best homemade dinner rolls for Wednesday Night Suppers. And my mom scored the recipe.

In Bowl 1 dissolve 3 T sugar in 1.5 cup very warm water. Add 1 1/4 T yeast and stir gently to dissolve.

In Bowl 2 mix:
5.5 cups flour (can sub 2 cups wheat flour + 3 cups flour)
1 t salt
1/4 t baking powder
1/4 c dry milk
2 T sugar

Back to Bowl 1. Add 4 eggs and 1/2 c melted butter (I told you these were good!) and beat well.

Add wet ingredients to dry and mix well. If the dough barely sticks, that's good. Knead the dough on a floured surface 8 minutes. Coat bowl in oil and place the dough in the bowl, turning it to coat lightly with oil. Let rise in a warm place 30 minutes. To test readiness, poke with your finger. If the indention stays, you're good to go. Roll onto a floured surface 1 inch thick. Cut into circles using a cookie cutter or a juice glass. Place on a cookie sheet and paint each roll with milk (or more melted butter). Let rise 30-45 minutes until doubled in size. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
