5 Ounce(s) melted butter

2 Cup(s) milk

1 Tablespoon(s) yeast

1/2 Cup(s) sugar

1/2 Teaspoon(s) salt

5 1/2 Cup(s) flour

1 egg yolk


Melt butter and heat milk to 98 degrees. Mix in the dry yeast (2 packages, or 1 tblspoon). Mix in sugar, salt and 5 cups of the flour (leave half a cup for later). Once mixed, put aside for 45 minutes (covered) to raise.

Need the dough with the flour until good (non sticky, but not too flowery) consistency. Cut the dough in half, roll each half into a thin (1/4" or thinner) rectangle. Spread soft butter on the bread, sprinkle a good amount of sugar and cinnamon (but not too much cinnamon!!). Roll into a long roll, and cut into 1" thick slices.

Place each slice in a large paper wrapper, brush a liberal amount of beat egg yolk on each roll, sprinkle with "pearl sugar". Let the rise again (45 minutes) under cover, and bake 5-8 minutes on 450 degrees.
