Recipe: Yummy Good Crescent Rolls

I LOVE my Yummy Good Rolls recipe.  It is truly a super easy recipe that is started in the bread maker.  I recently decided to try something different with my tried and true recipe....I made crescent rolls.  It really wasn't any more difficult than making regular rolls.  My kids had fun helping me roll them up and shaping them into crescents.  Before we rolled them up, we spread butter all over the dough and the end result was butter yummy goodness.


Yummy Good Rolls
(recipe by Wende Rickett/The Rickett Chronicles)

3/4 to 1 cup water, depending on the weather (if it is humid outside, I use less water; if it is dry, more water)
1 egg
3 tbsp butter
3 1/2 cups AP flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp yeast
2 tbsp butter, melted

Add ingredients to the bread maker as suggested by the manufacturer.  Once the dough cycle is complete, turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead a couple of times. Divide the dough in half.  Shape each half into a round.  Spread melted butter onto surface.  Cut round into 8 to 10 pieces (like a pizza). Roll each piece starting with the widest end.  Place each piece on a greased baking pan.  Shape the rolled dough into a half moon. Cover and let rise until doubled in volume, about an hour.  Bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.  Brush the rolls with butter.
