This is my sister-in-law, Rochelle's recipe. I swear I make these for everything. They are our favorite and never last more then 2 days in our house. You can use them for sandwiches, dinner, or cinnamon rolls. This is a really great recipe.
1 C. melted butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups hot water
1 tsp salt
Mix all of the above ingredients in bottom of mixer and then add 2 Tblsp. Yeast. Let sit until it begins to bubble. Add 6-6 ½ cups flour and 1 tsp. baking powder. Mix well until very elasticy. Leave in bowl and cover for 1 hour or until doubled. Punch dough down and divide into 4. On a well-floured surface, roll each part into a circle (14” diameter). Cut into 12 equal slice (like you would slice a pizza). Roll from the wide end to form crescent shape and place on cookie sheet to bake. Let rise again. Bake at 400 for 10-12 minutes. Brush tops with melted butter. Makes 4 dozen. These also make good cinnamon rolls. You can just use two of the four (separately) and place butter, cinnamon and sugar on top and roll up. Bake and glaze.
