my homemade roll re-post...

i had originally posted these on a recipe card & i thought that it would be a perfect match with kesley's jam.  i had a comment that had said that on the original recipe card that i posted, you couldn't read it well.  & this one is a must have!  i made 16 1/2 dozen of these this weekend.  so yummy!

{homemade crescent rolls}

3 cups scalded milk
1 cup potato flakes or buds
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter or shortening
1 TBSP salt
4 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 TBSP yeast
7 - 7 1/2 cups flour

Place potato flakes, sugar, salt & butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a bread hook.  Add scalded milk & mix on low until the mixture it lukewarm.  When the mixture is lukewarm, add eggs, yeast & flour to form a soft dough.  Dough will be sticky!!!  Don't add more flour.  Mix an additional 5-7 minutes until dough is smooth & elastic.  Let dough rise in the bowl until doubled in size.  About 1 1/2 hours.  Divide dough in 4 equal parts.  Form each part into rounds.  With a rolling pin, roll each round into a large circle.  Using a pizza cutter, cut into 12 wedge like triangles.  Roll up each triangle into a crescent roll.  Place onto a greased baking sheet & cover with plastic wrap sprayed with cooking sheet.  Repeat with all 4 dough rounds.  Let rise additional 3 hours or until doubled in size.   Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown on top.
