Overnight Rolls and Award

1 cup water
1 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. salt
1 cold cup of water
2 pkgs. yeast ( or I used 4 1/2 teaspoons)
1/2 cup warm water
4 eggs (beaten)
7 1/2 cups flour

butter for the tops

In a 6 quart pan bring 1 cup of water to a boil then add the 1 cup of butter, sugar and salt to the pan. Take it off the heat and add 1 cold cup of water. Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup of warm water. When the first mixture is luke warm you add the yeast mixture and eggs. Stir for a second. Then add the flour. Stir together. Cover pan and refrigerate over night.

Divide it into 3rds. Roll it out into a circle and cut with a pizza cutter into triangle for croissants or make whatever shape you want. Butter the rolls before you roll them up. Butter the baking sheets and butter the top of the rolls and let them rise for 4 hours.
Place them on baking sheets. 12 rolls per sheet. ( I got 15 next to each other this time)

Butter the tops of rolls when they come out too.

Now pop them in the oven for 400 * degrees for 10 minutes.

The Results:
So a while ago I posted these for Easter dinner. This time I made them for Thanksgiving. I changed a couple things this time. Last time I didn't butter the crescents before I rolls them up. I did this time and they turned out even better. They cooked to perfection and they were the best dang rolls I've had. Everyone raved about them and I was glad they turned out so good. They soaked up the gravy nicely. So here is a revisited recipe for these rolls. I love them and hope you try them.

So I received this award from Teresa over at A Blog About Food. She makes some delicious looking food. If you haven't heard about her blog please take a moment and go and check her blog out.

So I'm passing this on too.
