1/2 cup scalded milk or water
Scald milk and cool to lukewarm. Crumble yeast into milk and allow to soften for 5 minutes, (If dry granular yeast is used, soften in lukewarm water.) Add 1 tablespoon sugar and 1/2 cup flour to yeast mixture and beat until smooth. Cover and let rise about 1/2 hour. Sift flour, sugar, salt and mace into a mixing bowl, add butter or margarine and cut into the mixture until it resembles coarse meal. Combine 1 1/2 cups scalded milk (cooled to lukewarm) with egg. Add to flour mixture with spoon and stir to blend.
Add yeast mixture. Add about 2 cups of flour gradually, or enough to make a soft dough that can be kneaded. Turn out onto a lightly floured board and knead until smooth and elastic. Place in a lightly greased bowl, cover and allow to double in bulk, about 1 1/2 hours.
Divide into 6 parts and roll each into a circle about 1/4 inch thick. Brush with melted butter, then cut into pie-shaped wedges. Roll from wide to pointed end and place point down on a lightly greased baking sheet. Let rise until double, then bake in a 400-degree F. oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until done.
Makes 3 dozen rolls
