Crescent Rolls

Crescent Rolls

2 pkg. active dry yeast (2 tbsp.)
½ cup warm water
¾ cup warm milk
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup shortening
1 egg
1tsp salt
3 ½ to 4 cups flour

In bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add milk, sugar, egg, shortening, salt and flour. Turn onto a floured surface, knead until smooth and elastic about 5 minutes. Place in greased bowl and allow to rise in a warm place covered, for about 30 minutes.

Punch down dough and add a little flour to top and mix into the dough to take away any stickiness. Roll out into circles and cut into 8ths. Roll up into crescent shape. Bake at 350 for 10 to 12 minutes. I get about 32 rolls from one batch.
