1 pkg. active dry yeast
1/2 cup and 1 Tablespoon sugar, keep separated
1 1/2 Tablespoons warm water
1 cup milk, almost scalding (1- 1 1/2 minutes in the microwave)
1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 cups flour, sifted
1. Combine yeast, 1 Tablespoon sugar, and water in a small bowl, stir and set aside.

4. Beat three eggs with a fork and add to the mix.

roll out dough to 1/8-1/4 inch thickness, cut into triangles, then roll into crescent shape
