and not fresh enough.

4 Tablespoon sugar
1 cup lukewarm water
2 eggs slightly beaten
2 cakes yeast reg. or dry
1/2 cup soft butter
1 teaspoon salt
Crumble yeast in bowl, add water and sugar stirring till mixture liquidifies. Blend flour and butter with wire pastry blender.
Mix well, mix in eggs, salt and yeast. Mix until dough is smooth and leaves side of bowl clean.
DO NOT LET RISE.
Divide into four portions and roll each out in a rectangular shape spread with filling and roll up like Jelly Roll. Place in
greased baking pans. BAKE AT ONCE in 350 oven about 30 to 45 min. or until brown.
