  1. Combine 1 cup butter (or shortening) and milk in a small saucepan. Heat until butter is melted; set aside to cool.
  2. Dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in the warm water.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt together.
  4. Add the milk mixture and the yeast mixture in the egg mixture, stirring to blend.
  5. Add the flour and baking powder; stir until no dry patches remain. The dough will be wet and sticky. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
