new favorite rolls

I have 3 or 4 roll recipes in rotation here, and this one just bumped to spot #1 as favorite.  I made these for Thanksgiving.  Using leftover dough that sat in the fridge overnight, I made large round rolls (think Costco size/shape) for our leftover turkey sandwiches.

2 cups warm water
2 T yeast
1 T sugar

Combine in a large bowl and allow to sit for 5 minutes.  The yeast should bubble up a bit.  When it does, add:

2 sticks butter, melted and cooled (1 cup)
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 t salt
8 cups flour

Mix and knead well by hand or in a kitchen aid/bosch.

Let sit until doubled, then punch down.

Separate the dough into four equal sections.Take one section at a time and roll out on a floured surface into a circle that is 1/4″ thick.  Cut into 12 triangles.  Roll triangles up from the wide end, and place on a greased baking sheet.

Cover and rise until doubled.  Bake at 375 for 12-14 minutes, until golden.

This whole recipe makes 48 rolls and halves well.  If you halve it, use 2 eggs.
