Ingredients

  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 cups warm water (110° to 115°), divided
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 9 to 10 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in 2 cups water. Beat in eggs, honey, salt, 2 cups flour and remaining water. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. On a floured surface, roll to 1/2-in. thickness. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Cut into 4-in. circles. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets.
  4. Bake at 375° for 8 minutes or until bottom is browned. Turn and bake 7 minutes longer or until second side is browned. Cool on wire racks.
  5. To serve, split with a fork and toast.
