1 ts Salt
4 1/2 c Unbleached white flour
1 Egg yolk combined with: 2

Set aside for about 10 minutes or until the yeast has become foamy.
Stir in the butter, eggs, additional yolks and salt. Blend well. Add
the flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing well. Turn the dough out onto a
floured board and knead with additional four for about 5 minutes or
