  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 6 cups flour
  • Olive oil

Place sugar, salt and butter in a bowl. Add boiling water. Cool to lukewarm.

Dissolve yeast in 1 cup lukewarm water. Add to sugar and shortening mixture.

Add 3 cups of the flour and beat until smooth. Gradually add remaining flour. Knead the dough.

Grease a bowl with olive oil. Place the dough in the bowl and put in a warm spot until dough is doubled in size.

Punch down the dough and divide in half. Shape each into a round loaf and put on an oiled cookie sheet. Cover and let rise until doubled. Bake at 400° until golden.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_accordion active_tab=”0″][vc_accordion_tab title=”Appetizers, Condiments, and Other Good Stuff” tab_id=”1555256036-1-77ef90-6751663c-c861″][vc_raw_html]JTVCcGFnZWxpc3QlMjBjaGlsZF9vZiUzRCUyMjMxNTUlMjIlNUQ=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title=”Soups” tab_id=”1555256036-2-61ef90-6751663c-c861″][vc_raw_html]JTVCcGFnZWxpc3QlMjBjaGlsZF9vZiUzRCUyMjMyMzQlMjIlNUQ=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title=”Vegetables, Salads, and Sides” tab_id=”1555256908239-2-3ef90-6751663c-c861″][vc_raw_html]JTVCcGFnZWxpc3QlMjBjaGlsZF9vZiUzRCUyMjMyODglMjIlNUQ=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title=”Main Course” tab_id=”1555256981848-3-5ef90-6751663c-c861″][vc_raw_html]JTVCcGFnZWxpc3QlMjBjaGlsZF9vZiUzRCUyMjMyNDclMjIlNUQ=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title=”Breads and Rolls” tab_id=”1555257035287-4-5ef90-6751663c-c861″][vc_raw_html]JTVCcGFnZWxpc3QlMjBjaGlsZF9vZiUzRCUyMjMyMDMlMjIlNUQ=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title=”Desserts and Sweet Stuff” tab_id=”1555257099943-5-8ef90-6751663c-c861″][vc_raw_html]JTVCcGFnZWxpc3QlMjBjaGlsZF9vZiUzRCUyMjMzMDElMjIlNUQ=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_accordion_tab][/vc_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row]
