    rickie's Note:

    I really like the idea of being able to 'prepare' a yeast item the night before. These were just so easy to do, no fussing around. I found I had to postpone the baking the next day, so the dough was in the fridge for two nights... with no ill effects. Also, I only baked 1 'round' --with the other one going to bake tomorrow.

      These are excellent! The only thing I would say is the recipe is a lot more complicated than it needs to be. I used 3 tsp. yeast and I made mine with canola oil instead of crisco and used room temp. water. I didn't beat the eggs and I just put everything in the bread maker on the dough cycle. There is no need to let rise overnight - a warm oven for about 1 hr. does great. I also forgot to spread with butter before rolling them - I'm glad I did, they are plenty rich without any extra butter :) I will make again and again!! Thanks for a great recipe!

      It never occurred to me that I could make crescent rolls from scratch, and I would never have imagined how easy this was! I used butter instead of Crisco to avoid the partially-hydrogenated trans-fats. Turned out delicious. Thank you so much!

      Take a well-deserved bow for these wonderful rolls, rickie! Better than canned ones any day of the week ... and, easier, too! Made 'em for Kittencal's Crescent Chicken Roll dish, and boy, they went over big around here! I did what she did, and let them raise for 1 and 1/2 hrs, shaped, filled, and let raise again for about 30-35 min. Then, baked. Worked great for me, too! Thanks for this neat recipe, Hon ... It'll be a regular in my house! Laudee
