Dinner Rolls

INGREDIENTS
2 cups water, near boiling (or 1 water, 1 milk)
½ cup butter
2 tbsp yeast (instant)
½ cup sugar
2 tsp salt
4 eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten with fork
8-10 cups flour


DIRECTIONS
Pour water (or water/milk mixture) into bowl of stand mixer; melt in butter.  Add sugar and salt; mix to dissolve.  Mix in 4 cups of flour; check temperature (should be approximately 99°).  Mix in yeast; add eggs.  Mix in 4-6 cups flour, until is elastic, and not sticky.  Knead for 4 to 5 minutes.

Remove dough to an oiled bowl; roll dough over to coat and allow to rise in a warm place until dough has doubled in size.  Punch down, form rolls and let rise a second time in two 9×13 baking dishes covered with a moist cloth.  When doubled, bake at 365° for 10-15 minutes.  Rub tops with butter.
