Easter Rolls

I usually don't give away old family recipes, but this is special, and just in time for Easter. The main recipe was from my husbands mother. The new addition to this recipe is an idea from a friends aunt, who makes these for family gatherings and special occasions. So for those of you who like to bake...

Yeast Rolls
2 pkgs. yeast
1 cup warm water
1 cup milk, scalded
1 cup butter
2/3 cup of sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs, beaten
8 cups sifted plain flour
* Large Marshmallows*

Sprinkle yeast into warm water. Let stand a few minutes. Pour hot milk over butter, sugar, salt and cool to luke warm. (be sure it is cool before proceding) Add yeast/water mixture, eggs and half of flour. Beat well. Add enough flour to make a dough that will not stick to bowl. Turn out on lightly floured board (counter) and knead lightly. Put in an oiled bowl, cover and let rise until doubled. Punch down and turn out on a board (counter) Take enough dough for 1 roll and roll it out flat, cover 1 large marshmallow, closing it on all sides, and put seam on bottom. Continue untill dough is finished. Bake @ 425 for 20 minutes, brush with butter right away. Don't press down on them, because the marshmallow will have melted away, leaving an empty tomb.

Enjoy your "Empty Tombs" and if you serve these at a party, or for a special dinner with friends, maby you will have a *new* way to witness to some friends. Enjoy!
