Part 1
1/2 cup lukewarm water
2 packages dry yeast
1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Mix together until dissolved.

Part 2
2 cups boiling water
2 tablespoons shortening
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons salt

Mix and cool to lukewarm temperature.

Mix Parts 1 and 2 together, then add about 6 1/4 cups flour; blend well. Turn dough upside down every
10 minutes for approximately 4 or 5 times to avoid getting a crust on the dough. Divide dough in half
and roll as you would pie dough. Roll back up into a jellyroll. Make several diagonal cuts across top.
Put in bread pan and let rise until double, about 1 hour.

Just before baking, spread a mixture of 1 egg plus 2 tablespoons milk on top. Sprinkle with sesame
seeds, poppy seeds, etc. For a hard crust, use water with the egg instead of the milk. Bake at 425
degrees F for 15 to 25 minutes.

Makes 2 loaves or 3 long Italian loaves.

Rye Bread
Add 1 tablespoon caraway seed, 2 1/2 cups rye flour and 4 cups white flour instead of 6 1/4 cups white

Wheat Germ
Add 1/4 cup wheat germ to each 3/4 cup flour.

Raisin Bread
Add 1/4 cup raisins per white loaf

For rolls, use a little less flour, making a softer dough.

Cinnamon Rolls
Roll out dough, spread with butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon and brown sugar. Roll and cut into slices.
Put butter and brown sugar in bottom of pan. Lay in slices and let double.
