I found this yummy recipe for crescent rolls from your homebased mom
2/3 C sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick (1/2 C) butter
1 C boiling water
Combine first 3 ingredients. Pour water over all and allow sugar to dissolve and butter to melt.
Cool slightly so the water is not too hot when you add the yeast in.
Add 2 packages of dry active yeast to 1 C warm water.
Soak yeast in warm water for 5 minutes. Add to sugar mixture.
2 well beaten eggs
6 C flour
Add eggs and flour to mixture and blend well. Dough will be soft and
a little sticky. At this point the dough can be put into a bowl with a
tight lid and refrigerated overnight. Or you can just allow it to
raise for about 1 hour in the mixing bowl. Cover with a towel. After
raising put onto a floured covered surface. Divide dough in half. Add
in enough flour so the dough is workable and not too sticky. Roll out
into a 12 inch circle. Cut into 12 pie shaped pieces. Roll up into a
crescent roll. Do the same with the other half of the dough. Place on
baking sheet and allow to rise for about one hour or until doubled in
size. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
If you have refrigerated the dough just remove from the refrigerator 3
hours prior to baking and roll out the dough, form into crescents and
let rise for 3 hours.
Makes 24 good size rolls.
