Scald 2 cups of milk on the stove.
To scald, you will heat your milk until it starts to boil on the edges of the pan
Turn off the heat and melt 1 stick of butter in the milk
Set your milk and butter to the side and cool it down to a luke-warm temperature
While your milk is cooling down, you can get your yeast going.
Put 2 pkgs of yeast in 3/4 cup warm water
Let it set until it gets foamy (about 5 minutes)
When your milk is cooled down and your yeast is ready,
add the following ingredients
(You don't want to add your yeast to the milk until the milk has cooled down enough.
If they milk temperature is too hot, it will kill your yeast.)
1 cup sugar
3 eggs, beaten well
1 cup raisins (add this to the wet ingredients)
1 tsp. salt
7 cups flour
Let rise until doubled and roll out
Melt butter and spread over dough, covering all the edges
Sprinkle on brown sugar and cinnamon thick
Roll up your dough
And cut into individual pieces. I use a thread.
It cuts clean and doesn't smash down your dough
Place in greased pans and let rise until at least doubled
Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes
