1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. sugar
2 tsp. salt

Dissolve yeast in warm water and a little sugar. Let it get bubbly.

Beat eggs and add to cooled mixture. Then add yeast. Let stand a few minutes. Add flour--more may be needed.

Let rise, punch down. Let rise again. Shape into buns. Let rise again. Bake at 350° for 20 min. Yield: 4 doz. buns.
