Tender Crescent Rolls

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
  • Makes
    4 dozen

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 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 6 tablespoons shortening
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6-1/2 to 7 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  • In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a large bowl, combine milk, eggs, sugar, shortening, salt, yeast mixture and 3 cups flour; beat on medium speed 3 minutes until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  • Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch down dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 4 portions. Roll each portion into a 12-in. circle; cut each into 12 wedges. Roll up wedges from the wide ends. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets, point side down; curve to form crescents.
  • Cover with kitchen towels; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Bake until golden brown, 8-10 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks; serve warm.
