Refrigerator Dough Roll

1/2 cup lukewarm water
1 teaspoon sugar
1 package of dry yeast

3/4 cup of milk
1/4 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter or margarine

1 egg - well beaten
3 1/2 cups of all purpose flour (I usually have to add about 1/2 cup more)

1. Dissolve 1 teaspoon sugar into the warm water. Sprinkle with yeast. Let sit for 10 minutes. Then stir the mixture with a fork.

2. Scald the milk, 1/4 cup sugar, salt, and butter (or margarine). Pour the mixture into a bowl and let cool to lukewarm.

3. Add the yeast mixture and a well-beaten egg to the cooled milk mixture.

4. Beat in 1 cup of flour.

5. Blend in the remaining flour to create a dough.

6. Place the dough into a large bowl, cover tightly with aluminum foil. Place a damp tea towel over the top and tie firmly in place.

7. Place the dough into the fridge for at least overnight. It can be stored in the fridge up to five days before using.

8. Remove dough from the fridge and knead it for aout five minutes on a lightly floured surface.

9. Shape the dough into buns or rolls. To make the crescent rolls shown in the photo, roll 1/2 the dough into a circle about 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick. Cut the circle into eight sections (like a pie). Then roll each wedge from the wide end to the narrow end. Place the crescent on a cookie sheet with the tip at the bottom so it won't unroll while baking.

10. Another option for "fancy buns" is to make golf ball size balls from the dough and place three or four of them together into a muffin tin. This will make buns that look somewhat like a three or four-leaf clover.

11. Cover with clean tea towel, let rise in a warm place for one and a half hours or until doubled in bulk.

12. Bake at 375 degrees F for 15 minutes.

13. Makes about 24 rolls.
