Shirley's Crescent Rolls


2 packages yeast, or 2 tablespoons
1/2 cup warm water
1 1/2 cups milk, scalded
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup butter
7 cups flour, or more if needed
6 eggs
extra butter, softened

Add the yeast to the warm water, and scalded milk (very warm milk). Add sugar, salt and butter. Add 4 cups of the flour and eggs to the mixture. Mix well. Add 3-4 cups more flour until dough is soft and sticky.

Let rise until double or in the fridge overnight.

Divide into 3 parts. Roll into three 16 inch circles. Spread with soft butter. Cut with a pizza cutter into 16 wedges each. Roll up each wedge starting with the wide end. Let raise. Bake at 350 10-15 minutes.
