Air buns

This is Colletta Yerka's submition to the Hutchinson Branch cookbook given to me by my grandmother in-law. When I told Colletta that I was making them she said they were addicitive. She was right! They are different than any yeast bread I have made and she is right they are addicitve.

2 c boiling water
1 c sugar
1/2 c shortening
1 tsp salt
Stir all the above to melt shortening, then cool until warm.

1 1/8 tsp yeast
2 tbsp warm water
Dissolve these and add to water mixture. Then add:
2 eggs
7 c flour

Start at 4-5 PM. Knead ever hour until 9 PM. Grease pans. Make egg size buns. Grease tops or spray with Pam and cover with plastic wrap over night Bake at 6 AM at 375 for 20 minutes
