Picture perfect dinner rolls

I got this new recipe for rolls from a pastor's wife friend of mine. They are AWESOMELY delicious! Light and fluffy! Here's the recipe.

Melony's Famous Yeast Rolls

8-10 c. unbleached all purpose flour or bread flour
1 c. sugar
3 tsp salt
3/4 c butter
4 pkt rapid rise yeast (or 10 tsp. of bulk yeast)
1 1/2 c hot water
1 1/2 c milk
3 beaten eggs
Put milk into saucepan and scald. Add butter and water, let sit while yousift together,8 c. flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Add eggs then slowly add milk mixture ( make sure it is very warm but not too hot) while beating with a mixer. Add flour as needed until dough is stiff but still moist and sticky. Pour out onto a floured surface and kneed 4-5 minutes. Place in large (and I do mean the largest bowl you have in the house and THEN some!) buttered bowl and cover with plastic wrap.Place in fridge overnight. About 4 hours before serving, take dough out and kneed for about 1 minute. Roll out 1/4 of dough about 1/2inch thick. Cut into desired shapes ( I usually cut mine into square shapes) or cut off pieces and roll into balls. Place on buttered pan.. continue in like manner with the remaining dough. Let rise until almost double. (this will depend on humidity, temp, etc.) heat oven to 400... baketill desired color. (for mine it was about 7 or 8 minutes) Brush on melted honey butter (made by simply mixing room temp butter with honey to desired taste and then melting)

They looked beautiful, and tasted great, too!
