"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Angie Williams


1 tbsp. rapid rise yeast
1/4 c. warm water
1/2 tsp. sugar
1 c. warm milk
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 c. flour
2 eggs
3-4 c. flour
melted butter

1. Mix 1 tbsp. yeast with 1/4 cup warm water and 1/2 tsp. sugar. Let stand until BUBBLY.
2. In a large mixing bowl-mix1 cup warm milk, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup oil and 1 tsp. salt with a wooden spoon.
3. Add 1 cup of flour to mixture, mix well. Add 2 eggs and beat until smooth (mix vigorously by hand) Add Yeast mixture and mix vigorously until smooth.
4. Add 3-4 cups flour to the yeast mixture. Dough should be very sticky. Pour the dough in a large bowl. Cover with a tea towel and let rise for a few hours - or until double in size.
5. Once the dough has doubled in size punch down and divide in half.
6. Roll dough onto a floured surface making a circle about 12 inches round. Dough should be
about 3/8" thick.
7. Brush dough with melted butter. Cut circles with pizza cutter into 12 pieces (like a pizza).
Roll from rounded edge to the point to make a crescent roll. Place into a greased pan. (I use an
11 x 16 metal pan and do 3 across and 8 rows down)
8. Cover dough with a tea towel and let rise for a few hours until it doubles in size.
9. Bake at 375 until lightly browned, which is about 15-20 minutes. NOTE: Touch rolls to see if they bounce back -(if they do not - bake a little longer).
10. Brush with melted butter right out of the oven. ENJOY!!
