Combine and dissolve:

2 cups boiling water
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup olive oil or butter flavored Crisco
1 tbsp. salt

2 eggs
flour to consistency plus or minus 5 cups

Prepare between 2 and 5 pm. Mix the hot mixture from above, water, sugar, oil and salt. Add the flour till it cools a little then add the eggs. Add the yeast mixture. Keep adding flour till dough isn't sticky but is still moist. Put covered oiled dough in oven to rise. Add a measuring cup of water into the oven too to keep dough from drying out. Remove the dough from oven between 10 and 10:30 pm. Shape into rolls  or loaves using 2 roasting pans (not as big as a lasagna pan but not as small as a 9x13") for rolls. Put back into oven on the 2 racks and let rise until next day. About 7 am or 8 am take 1 pan out of oven and leave the other on the bottom rack also leave in the cup of water. Bake 350-375° 20-25 minutes.  The second pan bake 20 minutes. Can brush with olive oil or butter.

Alice called back in after this recipe was given and stated that she only gets one pan of rolls from the above recipe. If you want to follow the recipe exact, with the pans, double the ingredients.

SíMORE SQUARE from Martha Stewart Makes 12 (7-17-00 tv show) 8-5-00

Vegetable oil, for brushing
4 packages (3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon) unflavored gelatin
3 cups plus 5 tablespoons granulated sugar
1¼ cups light corn syrup
¼ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1½ cups confectionersí sugar
9 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted; plus 8 tablespoons (1 stick), room
temperature; plus more for pan
18 graham crackers, crushed to yield 1½ cups crumbs
1 pound semisweet chocolate, finely chopped

Brush a 9 X 13 inch glass baking dish with vegetable oil. Cut a piece of parchment or waxed paper large enough to cover the bottom of
the dish and overhang the longer sides. Place parchment in dish, brush with oil, and set dish aside. Pour 3/4 cup cold water in the bowl
of an electric mixer, and sprinkle the gelatin on top. Let stand for 5 minutes. Place 3 cups granulated sugar, corn syrup, salt, and 3/4 cup
water in a medium saucepan. Set saucepan over high heat, and bring to a boil. Insert a candy thermometer, and cook until mixture
reaches soft-ball stage (238°), about 9 minutes. In a mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, on low speed, beat the hot syrup into gelatin.
Gradually increasing speed to high, beat until mixture is very stiff, about 12 minutes. Beat in vanilla. Pour mixture into prepared baking
dish, and smooth the surface with an offset spatula. Set aside, uncovered, until marshmallow becomes firm, at least 3 hours and up to
overnight. Place 1 cup confectionersí sugar in a fine strainer, and sift onto a clean work surface. Invert large marshmallow onto
sugar-coated surface, and peel off parchment paper. Lightly brush a sharp knife with vegetable oil, and cut marshmallow into twelve 2
inch squares. Sift the remaining ½ cup confectionersí sugar into a small bowl, and roll the marshmallows in the sugar to coat. Set aside.
Heat oven to 350°. Brush a 9 X 13 inch glass baking dish with melted butter. In a large bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, 9
tablespoons melted butter, and remaining 5 tablespoons granulated sugar. Using the back of a spoon, press mixture firmly into the
prepared dish. Transfer to oven, and bake until the crust has set, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Bring a
medium saucepan of water to a simmer. Place chocolate in a medium heat-proof bowl, and set it over simmering water. Melt the
chocolate, stirring occasionally. Remove bowl from heat, and stir in butter, one piece at a time, until melted and thoroughly combined
with chocolate. Pour over cooled graham cracker crust. Using an offset spatula, spread into an even layer. Transfer to refrigerator, and
chill until firm, about 30 minutes. Heat broiler. Cut the chocolate crust into twelve 3 inch squares. Top each square with a marshmallow,
and place the assembled s'mores under the broiler just until the marshmallows turn golden brown, about 20 seconds. Serve immediately.
