      3/4 cup warm water
      1 teaspoon sugar
      2 tablespoons dry yeast (use 2 tablespoons yeast, even 1-3/4 tbsp will do fine)
      1/4 cup Crisco shortening, melted
      1 cup full-fat milk
      1 1/2 teaspoons salt
      4 tablespoons sugar
      4 cups all-purpose flour (more as needed)

      Prepare a heavy-duty stand mixer fitted with a kneader attachment.
      Place about 3-1/2 cups flour in the bowl.
      Melt the shortening in the microwave; add to the bowl with the flour.
      In a measuring cup, measure out 1 cup milk, then add in 4 tablespoons sugar and the salt; heat until quite warm in the microwave, stirring to dissolve the sugar and salt.
      Pour the milk into the bowl with the melted shortening and flour; cover the bowl with a towel to keep ingredients warm.
      Proof the yeast in a 3/4 cup warm water with 1 teaspoon sugar for about 8-10 minutes or until foamy.
      After proofing, add to the bowl and start kneading for about 3-4 minutes, then add in more flour as needed to create a soft semi-sticky dough, knead about 8 more minutes until smooth.
      Place the dough on a very lightly floured counter or board; let rest for 5-10 minutes, covered with a clean tea towel.
      Grease a large bowl, then place the dough into bowl to rise in a warm place for about 50-60 minutes (because of the amount of yeast, the dough should take a shorter rising time in a warm place).
      Punch down dough.
      Cut into pieces (I usually cut into 6 pieces), and shape large balls.
      Let dough balls rest for about 4 minutes (or just enough time to make shaping easier).
      Shape the dough into desired length for buns.
      Sprinkle a large cookie/baking sheet with cornmeal, or lightly grease with cooking spray.
      Place the long pieces of dough on a baking sheet (shape once again if you need to).
      Cover and let rise for about 25 minutes, or until doubled.
      Set oven to 375 degrees.
      Bake for about 22-25 minutes, or until dark golden brown.
      If desired after the second rising and just before baking, beat one egg white with 1 teaspoon cold water, then brush on buns and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
