Monkey Bread

2 cups milk
2 tbs sugar
2 to 3 tsp salt
1 tbs shortening
2 packages dry yeast
1/2 cups hot water
6 to 7 cup flour
Melted margarine

Scald milk and add sugar, salt, and shortening. Cool mixture to lukewarm. Sprinkle yeast into hot water and stir until dissolved. Stir yeast into milk mixture. Gradually add flour to milk mixture, mixing well. Add enough flour to make dough stiff enough to be handled easily. Turn onto lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Shape dough into a 18x3in loaf. Oil surface lightly. Cover and let rise until doubled (1 hour). Place large pot lid on bottom of Dutch oven, then line with foil. Cut loaf crosswise into 32 slices and dip slices into melted margarine. Place 8 slices to each layer in oven. Let rise again until doubled (1 hour). Bake until golden and crusty.
