Tender Crescent Rolls Recipe

My family's holiday meal consists of different soups and breads. This is one of the favorite breads during that meal.—Bonnie Myers, Callaway, Nebraska
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min. + rising Bake: 10 min./batch YIELD:48 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 envelopes (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 cup warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 6 tablespoons shortening
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6-1/2 to 7 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, eggs, sugar, shortening, salt and 3 cups flour. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes or until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into four portions. Roll each portion into a 12-in. circle; cut each circle into 12 wedges. Roll up wedges from the wide end and place point side down 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Curve ends to form a crescent shape.
  • 4. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Yield: 4 dozen.
