1 tablespoon Sugar
1 cup Water
7 pounds All-purpose flour
1 tablespoon Salt
½ pounds Butter; melted

8 Eggs; beaten well
3 cups Sugar dissolved in:

Have all ingredients at room temperature. Heat oven to 200& turn off.

Prepare yeast with 1 Tbs sugar & 1 cup water. Stir & set aside 10 minutes.

In large bowl, sift flour & make well in center. (Set aside 2-3 cups for kneading). Pour butter, oil, sat & eggs into well. Begin adding sugar & water & yeast mixture, working in flour to make medium-textured dough. Turn out on work area & knead 15-20 minutes, using extra flour if necessary. Cut through dough 2-3 times with knife to examine for air holes. When these are evident, dough is well kneaded. Grease top of dough lightly with butter or oil & cover & place in oven until doubled in bulk. Punch down & allow to rise again. On lightly oiled surface, dump dough out & cut into sections desired. Place in greased pans in oven to rise about 1 hour. Brush with egg & milk & sprinkle with sesame seed. Bake 1 hour at 300.
