2 packages yeast
1 cup warm water
1 cup flour
3/4 cup evaporated milk
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 cups flour
1 cup chilled butter
Sprinkle the yeast over the warm water in a large bowl. Add the next 6 ingredients and beat to a smooth batter. Set aside. Take the 3 cups of flour and cut in the chilled butter until pea sized. Pour this dry mixture into the yeast batter and stir just until all flour is moist.
