Proof yeast in lukewarm water and 1 Tablespoon sugar.
Scald milk and shortening; add sugar.
Cool to lukewarm.
Add 2 cups flour to make a batter. Add yeast to mixture. Add eggs; mix.
Add remaining flour to make a soft dough, a little at a time; amount of flour will vary some from the 7 cups. Knead lightly.
Place in a greased bowl; cover; set in place to rise until double, about 2 hours.
Punch down; let rise until double.
Form into balls; for kolaches make a dent in center and fill; let rise.
Bake in 400 degree Fahrenheit oven until nicely browned, about 15 minutes; no time given, guessing here.
