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.
