Aunt Arlaine's Crescent Rolls


"These easy crescent rolls are perfect for delicate fillings like chicken salad or heartier cold cut and cheese combos. They're delicious toasted with a bit of jam and a mug of coffee. Just a tiny bit sweet, make them once and then adjust the sugar next time to taste. I use either 1 T. or 2 packets of yeast."

  6. Leave to rise again in warm place. When doubled, bake at 350 until golden brown. Brush with butter if desired.
