My first post will be... Mom's Buns

These buns are a tried tested and true and are super flexible to be used for cinnamon buns, cheese buns, pizza buns, pizza pockets, orange knots, you name it it can be done...

5 cups warm (almost hot) water
3/4 honey
3 T. Yeast (fermipan has served me well for years, you can get it at Nutters)
6 T. Oil
3 eggs
8 cups flour
1 T. salt

Put water, honey, yeast into mixer and let it begin to grow. Add oil, eggs, flour, salt and then mix for 10-15 minutes. Add 4-6 cups MORE flour (in addition to first 8) until the dough pulls away from the edge of the bowl.  Remove dough hook and let raise for 15 minutes, then punch down.  Let it raise again for another fifteen and then you can form the rolls.  Let them raise for 1hr. then bake!  Heat oven to 350 and bake for 15 minutes.
These freeze really well and taste delicious!  Enjoy!
