Kolach Dough from Dad's Aunt Emily

1 c evaporated milk
1 1/2 c warm milk
6 Tb shortening
1/2 c sugar
2 eggs
2 pkg yeast dissolved in warm water
1 Tb salt
5 1/2 c flour or more

I have this a copy of this recipe in your dad's Aunt Emily's handwriting.  Kathy added the following:

Kolache dough needs 7 cups of flour.
Let dough rise for 70 minutes. Cut into circles, let rise about 5-10 min, cook at 400 F for 18 min.

I don't know if any of you remember eating these; Aunt Emily put a prune filling in some and I can't remember what else she used.  They are quite tasty.  The circles are maybe 2 inches in diameter.

Enjoy and feel your roots!
