In a large bowl, place yeast, 1/2 cup lukewarm water, sugar and ginger. When yeast is dissolved, stir in 2 cups warm water, 1/2 cup sugar, salt, eggs and 3 cups flour. Mix well. Add raisins which have been plumped over hot water. Add shortening and more flour. Knead until smooth. Place in a well greased bowl.
Combine all ingredients and spread on raised rolls. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes. In cutting the dough, use heavy thread. It cuts the dough much smoother and there's no mashing down of the dough.
