Freezer Crescent Rolls

Freezer Crescent Rolls

I found this recipe on the sister's cafe blog.  It is delish!  Thanks for sharing ladies!!

3 teaspoons active dry yeast
2 cups warm water
1/2 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup mashed potato flakes
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
6 to 6 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.  Add the butter, milk powder, sugar, potato flakes, eggs, salt, and 3 cups flour.  Beat until smooth.  Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough (for this a kitchen aid mixer is used.)  Turn onto a heavily floured surface; knead 8-10 times.  Divide dough in half.  Roll each portion into a 12-inch circle; cut each circle into 16 wedges (pizza cuter works great for this).  Roll up wedges from the wide end and place point side down 2 inches apart on a waxed paper-lined baking sheets.  Curve ends to form crescent shape.

To use Frozen Freezer Rolls:

Arrange frozen rolls 2 inches apart on baking sheets coated with nonstick cooking spray.  Cover and thaw in refrigerator overnight.  Let rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled.  Bake at 350 for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown.

*Busy Bee Note-- I always make more, generally I four times this recipe and then we can have hot delicious rolls whenever we want to with no fuss!  It's great for Sunday dinner, when the family comes over, or especially for my hubby!!   Also I usually get them out early Sunday morning and put then on a greased baking sheet.  Then I cover with saran wrap and when we get home from church they are ready to bake.  Hope you enjoy them too!!
