Jeni's Rolls

This is my favorite roll recipe and it will be your's too, once you try it.

Jeni’s Rolls

· 1 cup warm water
· 1 Tablespoon quick rising yeast
· 1 Tablespoon sugar

Combine above ingredients and set aside.

· 3 eggs
· ½ cup sugar
· ½ cup melted butter or margarine

Mix the eggs and sugar. Add the melted butter and yeast mixture. Mix until combined.

· 4 cups flour
· ¾ tsp
. salt

Add the flour and salt. Knead. Put a dishtowel over the bowl and let rise in a warm place for 1 ½ hours or until doubled.

Knead again adding ½-1 cup additional flour (add the flour until dough stops sticking to the sides of the mixing bowl. No more then 1 cup.)

Divide into two balls of dough and roll each ball into a large circle. Cut circles into fourths—like a pie. Cut each fourth into three equal triangles. You will have 12 triangles. Roll each triangle from the big end to the point into a crescent roll.

Spray two cookie sheets with cooking spray. Put a dozen rolls on each cookie sheet. Gently cover with kitchen towels and let rise in a warm place for 1 ½ hours more or until rolls double in size.

Bake at 400 degrees for 6-8 minutes or until golden. Brush with melted butter or margarine.

**You can make the recipe as above or you can take the easy route like I do and throw all the ingredients in the bread maker and set it to the dough setting. I'm not one for kneading and my bread maker makes the best dough, so why not! Hope you enjoy.
