Directions:
.Add 4 tsp sugar and 2 tbsp butter to scalded milk in large bowl. Cool to lukewarm. Dissolve remaining 2 tsp sugar in lukewarm water, stir in yeast. Let stand 10 minutes and stir again. Stir into lukewarm milk mixture. Add eggs, salt and enough flour to make a soft dough. Turn out on lightly floured board and knead lightly. Place in greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rise in warm place until double in bulk. Punch down dough. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill 1 hour in fridge.
Punch dough down again. Cut dough in 1/2. Keep 1/2 in fridge. Roll into rectangle 14X8" and 1/4" thick. Divide 1/2 cup butter in 3. Place 1/3 in small pieces over surface of dough, leaving 1" space around outer edges. Fold ends to centre to make 3 layers. Roll again, place another 1/3 butter over dough and fold as before. Repeat with remaining 1/3 butter. Fold dough over, wrap and chill one hour. Repeat with remaining dough.
Cut each piece of dough in 1/2. Roll each to a 12" circle. Using a sharp knife, cut each circle into 6 pie shaped wedges. For each croissant, roll up from long edge towards point. Bend ends into a crescent shape. Place on ungreased cookie sheet with rim. Cover and let rise at room temperature until double in bulk (do not try to speed rising by placing in too warm a spot) When almost double, brush with a mixture of 1 egg beaten with 1 tbsp water.
Bake at 400 12-15 minutes
