Updated Crescent Rolls
This recipe came from my mom, I have cut the sugar and butter in half and used half wheat flour and they are still very good rolls.
2 T yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups warm water
Let this sit for 10 minutes until bubbly.
Then mix the rest of the ingredients in
1/2 stick melted butter (1/4 cup)
1 t salt
3 cups white flour
3 cups wheat flour (You may not need all of this)
Let rise until doubled in size then punch down and make into two balls. Let these rise until doubled and then roll out into a circle. Spread a thin layer of butter on top of circle. You need to cut it like a pizza into triangles to roll up. I find a pizza cutter works really well but you can use a knife. Roll up into crescents and place on baking sheet. Let rise again and bake at 350 until light brown on top.
