This recipe was given to me by my mother-in-law. They are really soft, fluffy, and so easy to make!
1 package Rapid Rise Yeast (I use regular yeast = 1 heaping Tbs yeast)
2 cups hot tap water
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter or margarine, melted
1 Tablespoon oil
6 to 8 cups bread flour
Sprinkle yeast over water & let stand 5 minutes.
Mix in eggs, sugar, salt, and melted butter or margarine.
Mix in flour 2 cups at a time until dough is firm (usually 6 cups).
Put 1 Tablespoon oil in bottom of large bowl.
Place dough in bowl and turn until dough is completely coated with oil.
Cover bowl with damp cloth & let stand at room temperature for 3 hours, overnight, or until doubled.
Roll dough onto floured surface until ½ inch thick & cut out rolls.
Let rise for another 1½ hours or until doubled.
Brush tops of rolls with melted butter.
Bake rolls at 325˚ to 350˚ for 20 to 25 minutes, or until tops are a light golden brown.
(I also rub butter on the tops as soon as they come out because I like them to be soft not crusty, but this is just my preference.)
