Crescent Rolls

I got the Lion House Christmas Recipe book a lot time ago from my Aunt. This is one of my favorite recipes and is so easy.
This recipe isn't their recipe word per word, but the ingredients are the same.

In a small bowl add:
2 Tbsp. yeast to 2 C. warm water. Let sit for 5 minutes.

In a large mixing bowl add:
1/3 C. softened butter (I like to soften mine in the microwave for probably about 40 sec to 1 minute)
1/3 C. sugar
2 tsp. salt
2/3 C. nonfat dry milk
1 egg
Stir well.
Then add:
Yeast mixture
5-6 C. flour
Knead about 25-30 times on a well greased surface.
Let rise until double in bulk in a well greased bowl.
Punch down and cut into three sections.
Roll out.
Slice with a pizza cutter into 12 pieces. (Cut in half, then in half again, and again until you have desired sized pieces)
Start from the thickest side and roll up.
Place spaced out about 2 inches on a well greased cookie sheet.
Brush tops with melted butter. 
Let rise until double in bulk.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for 12 minutes.
Makes 3 dozen rolls.
Oh ya, I added about 1/2 C. 6 grain cereal mix for added nutrition. You can also add oats. 

Enjoy! I do. :)
