Mom's Rolls

1 C. Milk
1/2 C. Warm Water
3 T. Sugar
2 Eggs
1 T. Yeast
1/3 C. Butter, melted
1 tsp. Salt
4 C. flour-approx.
Scald Milk.  Add but, sugar, and salt.  Cool to lukewarm.
Combine yeast and water.  Add a pinch of sugar to help activate the yeast.
Add eggs to large bowl and beat until frothy.  Add milk and yeast and then add flour to form a soft dough.  Stir well.  Cover and let rise to double. 
Divide dough into thirds and form into rolls-whatever desired shape.  Let rise about 20-30 minutes.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 10-20 minutes.  Do not over bake.

To form rolls into crescent shape:  divide dough into 3 equal sections.  Roll each section into an 8" circle.  Spread butter on circle.  Cut into 8 equal pie shaped slices.  Roll up starting at wide end of slice.
