Whisk yeast, 1/2 cup warm water and 1/4 cup sugar. Allow to stand until yeast is dissolved.
In the meantime, add eggs, butter and 2 cup warm water in bowl and mix. Add dissolved yeast mixture and then add the remaining dry ingredients. Stir until well mixed. Cover and allow to rise 1 hour.
Turn onto floured board; knead once or twice to make dough easy to handle. Roll into desired shapes (I divide the dough in half and roll into a circle, melt some butter and put on top, then cut it like a pizza and roll crescent rolls). Place on greased pan. Allow to rise 20-30 minutes. Bake 10 minutes at 375 or until done.
