CRESCENTS

INGREDIENTS:
1 package active dry yeast,
1 cup warm milk,
1/2 cup butter, softened,
1/3 cup sugar,
1 egg,
3/4 teaspoon salt,
4 to 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour,
1 egg + 1 teaspoon water= egg wash;
DIRECTIONS:
In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add butter, sugar, egg, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch the dough down. Turn onto a floured surface; divide in half. Roll each portion into a 12 inch circle; cut each circle in 8 or 12 wedges. Roll up wedges from the wide end and place pointed end down 2 inches part on greased baking sheets. Curve ends to form crescents. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Brush crescents with egg wash.
Bake at 375 F for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove crescents to wire racks to cool.
Enjoy!

  22. Gabriela, ce placere mi-a facut vizita ta! cred ca este pentru prima data cind vii nu? (sau prima data cind lasi comment???)
    referitor la aceste cornulete, daca observi la ingrediente, seama foarte bine cu piinea la gust.
    Cu aceeasi compozitie poti sa faci orice forma la coca ; eu am vrut cornuletele astea acum... xo
