DISSOLVE yeast in warm water in small bowl; let stand 5 minutes.
BEAT together milk, sugar, salt, shortening and eggs in bowl of electric mixer. Add yeast mixture; beat thoroughly. Add 2 1/2 cups flour; beat well. Turn dough out onto a well-floured board; knead about 5 minutes, or until smooth and elastic, adding only enough flour to make dough easy to handle.
SHAPE dough into ball. Spray a large bowl with no-stick cooking spray. Place dough in prepared bowl, turning dough over to coat. Cover; let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
PUNCH down dough. Shape as directed in desired recipe.
