This is a recipe for Crescents, not be confused with Croissants. The recipe was given to me by my mother-in-law. She makes crescents at Christmastime. I have adapted this recipe, utilizing the bread machine.

Once the dough is made. You divide it into 3 equal portions. The dough is rolled into a circle, and cut into wedges, as you would slice a pizza. Each wedge is rolled, starting from the widest part, and ending at the point.

This is a great all-purpose soft dough. I use it for Cinnamon Rolls, Breads and Twists, Beerocks, Pigs In A Blanket and Calzone.

3/4 Cup milk
1/2 Cup water
2 Eggs
4 1/2 Cups all-purpose flour
1 Teaspoon salt
1/3 Cup sugar
1 Tablespoon dry yeast
4 Tablespoons butter
1 1/2 Tablespoons melted butter

Place all ingredients, except melted butter in bread machine pan. Run on dough cycle. When done, remove dough from pan and divide dough into 3 equal balls. Roll out each ball; on a floured surface, into a 9" circle. Divide each circle into 8 wedges. To roll, start at the wide end, roll up each wedge toward the point. Transfer to a baking sheet and let rise. Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from oven and brush with melted butter. Makes 24 rolls.
