2 packages dry yeast
2 cups lukewarm milk (105° to 115°)
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup lard, melted
1 cup butter or margarine, melted

Preparation

Combine yeast, milk, 1 cup flour, and sugar in a large mixing bowl; stir well. Add 1 cup flour and salt; mix well. Stir in egg and lard. Gradually add remaining flour; stir until well blended. (Dough will be soft.)

Turn dough out onto a floured surface; knead 8 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface; cut with a 2-inch biscuit cutter.

Dip each roll in melted butter. Make a crease with a knife across each circle, and fold roll in half. Gently press edges to seal. Place on baking sheets, and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 30 minutes or until doubled in bulk. Bake at 400° for 12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot.
