Scald milk, stir in sugar, salt and butter. Cool to lukewarm.
Pour water into a large bowl, stir in yeast, then the milk, stir in eggs
and 1 1/4 cups of flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough of the remaining
flour to make a soft dough. Let rise until double its original size.
Brush top lightly with melted butter. Turn out onto a heavily floured board.
Work dough until not sticky, but also, not heavy. Make any desired shape and
let rise again until double its size.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.
One half cup of white raisins or 1/2 cup of glazed fruit may be added to
