Soft, Buttery Rolls

I got this recipe from another recipe blog I sometimes contribute to. They are supposed to be just like the rolls at Texas Roadhouse. I don't know that they were "identical" in my mind, but they were very good. Soft, buttery and well-flavored. We made them large and used them as hamburger buns as well.

1/2 sol. oz. cake of yeast or 1 pkg. active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups milk- scalded and cooled to lukewarm
3 tablespoons of melted butter - cooled
1/2 cup sugar
3-4cups all purpose flour
2 whole eggs
2 tsp. salt

Soften yeast in warm water with a teaspoon of sugar.
Add yeast, milk, sugar and enough flour to make a medium batter. Beat thoroughly. Let stand until light and foamy.
Add melted butter, eggs and salt. Beat well.
Add enough flour to form soft dough. Sprinkle small amount of flour on counter and let dough rest. (If using a stand mixer, mix on dough setting for 6-8minutes)
Grease clean surface of bowl. Knead dough until smooth and satiny. Put in greased bowl; turn over to grease top. Cover; let rise in warm place until double in bulk.Punch down.
Turn out on floured board. Divide into portions for shaping; let rest 10 minutes.Shape dough into desired forms. Place on greased baking sheets. Let rise until doubled.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-15 minutes (until golden brown). Baste immediately with butter.

Makes 4 dozen.
