 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 c Milk
  • 1/2 c Butter; softened
  • 1/3 c Granulated sugar
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1 pk Active dry yeast
  • 1/2 c Warm water; 105-115 degrees
  • 1 lg Egg; lightly beaten
  • 3 1/2 c All-purpose flour; to 4 cups


1 lg Egg; lightly beaten

In a saucepan, heat milk until bubbles appear around edges of pan. Combine
butter, sugar, and salt. Add hot milk; stir well. Cool to lukewarm (95-100
degrees). In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until
foamy, 5 to 10 minutes. Beat yeast mixture and egg into milk mixture at low
speed. Beat in 2 cups of flour at low speed until smooth. Continue beating
until thick. Mix in enough remaining flour until dough pulls away from
sides of bowl. On a floured surface, knead dough very gently until smooth
and elastic, 2 to 3 minutes. Place in a large greased bowl, turning to
coat. Cover loosely with a damp cloth; let rise in a warm place until
doubled, 1 hour. Punch down dough. On a floured surface, divide dough in
half. Cover with a damp cloth; let rest for 10 minutes. Grease 2 baking
sheets. Using a floured rolling pin, roll 1 dough half into a 12-inch
circle. Cut circle into 6 wedges. Starting at side opposite point, roll up
each wedge. Place, point-sides down, on prepared baking sheets. Curve ends
to form crescents. Repeat with remaining dough half. Cover loosely with a
damp cloth; let rise in a warm place until almost doubled, 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush crescents with glaze. Bake until golden,
15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Baking Tips: Knead dough very gently to keep rolls tender.
