    Good si ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 tablespoon yeast (one package)
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 2 1/3 cups flour
    • 1 egg, lightly beaten
    • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
    • 1 cup ham, finely diced (some people use deviled ham with good results)


    1. 1
      Activate yeast.
    2. 2
      In a large glass bowl mix sugar, salt oil, milk and flour. Knead until mixed. Add the egg and continue kneading, adding the yeast last.
    3. 3
      Cover and let the dough rise in a warm place for two hours.
    4. 4
      Knead the dough again, and then divide it in half. Working with one half at a time, roll into a 10" circle. Cut the flattened dough into 8 triangles. Place ham in the widest part of each triangle. Then roll from the wide end to make a crescent. Place on a cookie sheet.
    5. 5
      Cover the rolls with plastic and let rise for one hour in a warm place. Pre-heat oven to 350-375 degrees Fahrenheit.
    6. 6
      Brush melted butter on each roll and bake 15 minutes or until they are light golden. Remove and brush with egg white. Return them to the oven until they are golden brown.

      These were very easy to make and were delicious! I made the dough in my bread machine so It was even easier. My husband, from Venezuela, says they are perfect and keeps begging me to make more.
