Mix 1 TB yeast with ¼ cup warm water and ½ tsp. sugar.
Let stand until bubbly.
In a large bowl mix 1 cup warm milk, ½ cup oil, ½ cup sugar, 1 tsp. salt with a wooden spoon.
Add 1 cups of flour to mixture, and mix well.
Add 2 eggs and beat until smooth (mix vigorously be hand).
Add yeast mixture and mix vigorously until smooth.
Add 3-4 cups flour to the yeast mixture.
Dough should be very sticky.
Pour the dough into a large bowl.
Cover with a tea towel and let rise for a few hours until it has doubled in size.
Once the dough has doubled in size punch down and divide in half.
Roll dough onto a floured surface making a circle about 12 inches round.
Dough should be about ⅜" thick.
Brush dough with melted butter.
Cut circles with a pizza cutter into 12 pieces (like a pizza).
Roll from rounded edge to the point to make a crescent roll.
Place into a greased pan (we use an 11 x16 metal pan and do 3 across and 8 rows down).
Cover dough with a tea towel and let rise for a few hours until it doubles in size.
Bake at 375 until light lightly browned, which is about 15-20 minutes.
NOTE: Touch rolls to see if they bounce back - if they do not, bake a little longer).
Brushed with melted butter right while warm. ENJOY!
