Preparation / Directions:
In a saucepan, heat milk, sugar, salt, and butter. Cool to lukewarm.
In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Combine milk mixture, yeast, and 1 1/2 cup flour; beat till smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes.
Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
Punch dough down. Pinch off dough, and roll into long strips. Place strips on greased baking sheets 1" apart. Brush with melted butter. Cover and let rise 15 minutes.
Bake at 400F for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
