Freezer Crescent Rolls

This is a great roll recipe that not only uses ingredients from your long term food storage but you can whip up several batches at a time and keep the roll dough in your freezer until you're ready to bake up some fresh rolls. YUM!

3 tsp. yeast
2 cups warm water
1/2 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup non-fat dry milk powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup mashed potato flakes
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp. salt
5 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add butter, milk powder, sugar, potato flakes, eggs, salt and 3 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Continue to slowly add remaining flour. Divide dough in 2 equal parts. Form each part into a round then roll out into a circle on a lightly floured surface. Cut each circle into 16 pie shaped pieces. Form into crescent rolls. Place a sheet of wax paper on jelly roll pan. Arrange rolls on wax paper, cover and freeze for several hours. Remove rolls from freezer and place in a Ziploc freezer bag. Store in freezer. May be frozen up to 4 weeks.

To use: Arrange rolls on a baking sheet sprayed with Pam. Cover with plastic wrap sprayed with Pam. Allow to thaw and raise for 10 hours. Easy to do overnight. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Lightly butter tops immediately after baking. Makes 32 rolls.
