Quick-rise Dinner Rolls

Hot DAMN! Perfection on a plate. Fluffy and tasty and rich.
2 cups water
1 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
½ cup water
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
3 packages quick-rise yeast
1 teaspoon salt
7 ½ cups self-rising flour

In a large bowl place 2 cups of water and butter. Microwave for 2 ½ minutes. In another bowl, mix 1 cup sugar and eggs. In separate cup, microwave ½ cup water for 30 seconds. Add 1 teaspoon sugar and dissolve the yeast – mix. Mix butter, water, sugar, and eggs mixture together; add salt. Mix in the yeast mixture. Stir in 7 ½ cups flour. Mix well and let rise. When ready to use, dump onto floured surface, lightly knead using enough flour for easy handling. Shape into rolls (or bread loaves) and place on greased baking sheet (or loaf pan).
Let rise for 30 minutes in a warm area or until doubled in size. Brush tops with melted butter. Bake at 400, until tops are golden. Turn out to cool on a rack. Brush tops with melted butter again. Makes 24-30 rolls.
