My Mom's Crescent Butter Dinner Rolls

It's baking season...and my sister called for this recipe that our Mom used to make all the time. My favorite roll recipe and it's so easy!

Mom’s (Caroline H) Crescent Butter Dinner Rolls

1 Tb yeast
1 Tb sugar
¼ cup warm water

1 cup butter
½ cup sugar
1 cup warm milk
1 tsp salt
3 eggs

4 1/3 cup flour

Mix yeast with sugar and warm water – let rise

In another bowl melt butter, add milk, beat 3 eggs, add sugar, salt and yeast mix. Then add flour. Cover and place in fridge overnight.

I divide the dough into four balls. Roll out one ball into a circle and then cut like a pie/pizza. I can usually get about 10 triangles from each circle. Roll from out to in to create crescent shape. Place on baking sheet, sprayed with Pam (or use parchment paper).

Let rise for four hours.

Bake 350 for 10 minutes or 325 for 15 minutes.

Rolls should be somewhat golden brown. After removing from oven, butter the tops and serve… with butter of course.

Refrigerated dough should keep for a few days.
