Crescent Rolls

This is a good recipe to use for your Thanksgiving dinner.  You can make these now and freeze them and just reheat them at dinnertime.
  • 3/4 C.milk
  •  1/2 C. sugar 
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 1 C.  water
  • 5 to 6 C. flour
  • 1/2 C. softened butter
  • Mix these ingredients and knead them until you have a smooth ball of dough.  Place it in a buttered bowl, cover and let it rise until doubled.
Cut the dough in half and place it on a floured surface.
Roll it into a circle about 14 inches wide. Brush it with extra melted butter.
Cut it in half.
And then into 16 pieces.
Roll each piece from the wide end.  Repeat with the second half of the dough.
Place them on a parchment covered baking sheet. 
Brush them with more butter.
Cover them and let them rise for about 30 minutes.
Uncover them and bake them at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes.
Brush them with more butter when you remove them from the oven.  Cool them on racks.
Watch the time.  These turn golden on the bottom faster than on the top.
