Crescent Rolls

Crescent Rolls

2 Pkg. (or 4 1/2 tsp) Yeast
4 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 warm water
1 cup warm milk
1/2 cup canola oil
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 tsp. salt
5 cups bread flour

Directions:Heat water and milk in the microwave until it is just warmer than body temperature. Add yeast, sugar and oil. Let the yeast grow. Add flour and salt to a mixer bowl with a dough hook. Add eggs to yeast mixture. Then add mixture to flour. Knead on low until dough is soft, about 5 minutes. Cover with a damp towel and let rise until about doubled. Divide dough into thirds. Roll out flat in a rectangle shape until it is pretty thin. Using a knife cut dough into rectangles.

Using a knife, cut rectangles in half diagonally, making triangles.

Starting at the wide end of the triangle, start to roll dough toward the small pointy end. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet with the point side down so it doesn't unravel while baking. Brush with melted butter. Cover with plastic wrap sprayed with Pam and let rise. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes. This recipe was given to me by Debbie B. These rolls are great with just about anything, but are fabulous with a hot bowl of soup on a cold day!
