Crescent Dinner Rolls

You will need:

2 cups warm water

2/3 cups dry milk powder

2 tbsp yeast

1/4 cup sugar

2 tsp salt

1/2 cup butter

1 egg

4 1/2 – 5 cups all-purpose flour{{more}}


In a mixing bowl, stir dry milk powder in warm water until it dissolves. Add yeast, then sugar, salt, butter, egg and 2 cups flour. Mix on low speed until ingredients are wet, then 2 minutes at medium speed. Add 2 more cups of flour, mix on low speed until ingredients are wet, then 2 minutes at medium speed. (You can switch your attachment to the dough hook at this point for easier mixing). Add 1/2 cup flour again, mixing on low speed until wet, then 2 minutes at medium speed. You can add an additional 1/2 cup if your dough is still too wet. Dough should be soft, not overly sticky, and not stiff. Scrap the dough off the sides of the bowl and pour about 1 tbsp of vegetable oil around the sides of the bowl, so that the bowl is coated. Cover and allow to rise in a warm place until the dough doubles in size.

Place the dough on a flat floured surface, then divide the dough in half. Roll out 1/2 the dough into a circle. Cut the dough into 16 even slices. Begin to roll the slice of dough in, starting from the wide end and tuck the small point underneath. Place rolls on greased and floured baking sheet or parchment. Repeat with remaining half of dough. Let rolls rise for about 1 1/2 hrs, until double in size. Bake at 375° F for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter while hot.
