New Years Rolls

Here's a great roll recipe for New Years.

Heat over medium-high heat in saucepan for 2 minutes, then set aside.

·       5 cups flour
·       2 Tbs. active dry yeast
·       1 tsp. salt
·       1 egg
·       ¼ cup sugar

Combine dry ingredients in bowl.  Add water/butter mixture and blend well.  Add egg, slightly beaten.  Knead for 6-8 minutes, until smooth and elastic.  Place in a greased bowl, turn once and cover with a clean cloth.  Let rise until double. Punch down and divide into thirds.  Roll out each third into a circle and then cut into 12 pie-shaped pieces with a rolling pizza cutter or knife.  Roll each pie-shaped piece into a crescent and let rise again on baking dish.  It also works to just make round balls of dough for the rolls.

Bake at 350o for 12 – 15 minutes or until golden.
