2 packages active dry yeast -- (1/4-ounce)
1 cup warm water -- (110 to 115 degrees)
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup shortening
3 large eggs -- beaten
6 cups unbleached flour -- (up to 6-1/2)

Preparation / Directions:

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Place sugar and salt in large mixing bowl. Set aside. Heat and stir milk and shortening until shortening melts (120 to 130 degrees). Add to mixing bowl along with eggs and yeast mixture. Stir in 1 cup of flour at a time to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured board; knead until smooth and elastic. Place in a large greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Shape into desired rolls or loaves. Place on greased baking sheets or in bread pans. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake rolls at 375 degrees for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden. Bake loaves at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes or until bread tests done. Remove from pans and cool on wire racks.
