Sara Bury's Crescent Rolls

A few may remember a family in the Concord 1st ward that had six kids. Well I got this recipe from the mom, Sara Bury. The rolls are a little bit of work the night before but super easy the next day. And fabulous to-boot.


1/4 c. warm water
1 pkg. yeast(rapid rise)
3/4 c. scalded milk(hot to finger, perfect)
1/2 c. margarine(imperial)
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. sugar
3 beaten eggs
3 1/2-4 c. flour
1 cube butter, melted butter(reserved)


Scald milk and add butter and salt. Cool to luke warm. Whisk eggs, just to get air into them. Add yeast and sugar. Slowly add flour and make a soft dough. Let rise over night or for 2 hours(if in a hurry). Roll out 1/4" thick and cut into crescent shape with a pizza cutter. Spread reserved margarine over top then roll up into rolls. Spread again with margarine after all on the pan. Let rise for 4-5 hours. (The more they raise the lighter they are). Bake at 350* for 10 mins. Just lightly brown. Enjoy with butter and jam. Makes about 3 dozen!
