My mother has been making these for years. Our family loves them, and hope you do too. I use my mixer and dough hook to make. Thank you Chef#37636 for noticing that I forgot to put in the last part of the directions and have now included:)

These turned out quite well, I used half each milk and water and to speed up rising time I reduced eggs to one, I will increase the salt slightly next time just for my own taste, thanks WiGal

When I made this recipe I came to a halt during the preparation when I found there were no instructions past step 11. I finished the dough using my own knowledge of baking, and quite enjoyed what turned out. But I know they would be different from the recipe, especially as mine were not made as crescent rolls at the very least. The dough was very nice however, and I am rating based on that, and hope to sometime soon make this again with all the instructions intact. ~Lorie
