Butterhorn Rolls

Note:  These are special occasion rolls.   They are not difficult to make as much as they take a long time to rise.   However, don't let that scare you away from giving them a try because they are delicious!

Butterhorn Rolls

1/2 cup warm water
2 Tbsp Instant yeast
2 Tbsp sugar
2 cups milk
6 beaten eggs
1 cup sugar
6 Tbsp melted butter
2 tsp salt
8-11 cups flour

Dissolve yeast and sugar in water and let stand for a few minutes until foamy. Meanwhile, scald milk in the microwave (usually 1 or 2 minutes) and then cool to lukewarm. Add the milk, eggs, sugar, butter and salt to the yeast mixture and stir. Add flour, one cup at a time and mix well until the dough is cleaned from the sides of the bowl, and soft and pliable. Place in a lightly greased bowl and cover. Let rise in a warm place for 5 hours.

After the first rise, divide dough into five pieces. Roll each piece into a large circle, 1/4" thick. Cut circle into 12 or 16 wedges. Roll up from the widest end to the tip, creating a butterhorn shape. Place on greased baking sheets and brush tops generously with melted butter. Let rise for 3 hours. Bake @ 350 degrees for 13-14 minutes. Brush tops again with melted butter immediately after removing from the oven.
