Easy Dinner Rolls

1 c. warm water (105 to 115*)
2 pkg. active dry yeast
½ c. butter or margarine, melted
½ c. sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. salt
4-4 ½ c. all-purpose flour

Combine the warm water and yeast in a large bowl. Let the mixture stand until yeast is foamy, about 5 minutes. Stir in butter, sugar, eggs and salt. Beat in flour, 1 c. at a time, until dough is too stiff to mix. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours or up to 4 days. Grease a 13x9-inch pan. Turn the chilled dough out onto a lightly floured board. Divide dough into 24 equal-sized pieces. Roll each piece into a smooth round ball; place balls in even rows in the prepared pan. Cover and let dough balls rise until doubled in volume, about 1 hour. Preheat over to 375*. Bake until rolls are golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Brush warm rolls with melted butter, if desired.
