My family loves it when I make rolls for dinner.  Their favorite is Crescent Rolls.  I usually have to double the recipe when we get my siblings together.

You start by taking 1 Tablespoon of yeast and sticking it in 1/2 cup of warm water and set it aside. (Pictured below is the recipe doubled, as with all the pictures)
 Then in a mixing bowl you put in 1/2 cup of butter (softened) and 3/4 cups of milk (scalded)  with a teaspoon of salt.  You combine those ingredients then add 3 beaten eggs.  Then you take 1/2 cup of sugar and 2 cups of flour and stir those in.
 Then you add the yeast and water that you set aside and two more cups of flour.  Then you let the dough sit for about an hour.
 Divide the dough into thirds and roll each section into a flat circle about 1/4 inch thick.  Cut each circle into 8ths with a pizza cutter and roll from the wide end of the triangle to the point. This makes 24 rolls.
 Place on a greased cookie sheet and let double in size.  Then bake at 350 Fahrenheit for 12-15 minutes.  Then rub butter on the top and enjoy.

Dinner Crescents
1 TBSP Yeast
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup milk, scalded
1 tsp salt
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup sugar
4 cups flour

Sprinkle yeast in the water and  set aside.  Combine butter, milk and salt in a mixing bowl.  Beat eggs and add to milk mixture.  Add sugar and 2 cups flour to the milk mixture.  Stir in the yeast and remaining 2 cups of flour.  Let dough rest for an hour.  Separate the dough into thirds and roll each piece into a circle.  Cut the circles with a pizza cutter forming 8 triangles.   Roll each triangle from the wide end to the point.  Let sit until double in size and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 12-15 or golden brown.  Makes 24 rolls.
