2: Sweet Dough | You Will Need: 2 tsp. yeast 1 half cup sugar 1 half cup butter 2 eggs 1 cup milk 4 cups flour 1 half tsp. salt | If using self-rising flour, omit salt
3: Directions | Place all the ingredients in the bread machine in the order that is written. In order that the yeast can rise to its full potential, you must not forget to do this. Once all the ingredients are added, put your bread machine on the setting for dough. Once it is mixed, let rise for about two hours. Refrigerate it for two hours or up to one week, depending on when it is needed. Use for Orange Rolls, Bread, and Cinnamon Rolls. | You do not need to use bread flour for this recipe.

4: Butter Crescents | You Will Need: 1 cup milk 1 stick butter 2 eggs 1 half cup sugar 1 half tsp. salt 4 cups all purpose flour 2 tsp. yeast
5: Directions | Place all ingredients into a bread machine. Put the machine on a cycle for dough. Dough will be rather sticky and will probably cling to the side of the bowl of the machine. Let the dough rise inside of the machine for about two hours. Once dough has risen, take it out, wrap it in cling wrap, and put it inside the refrigerator until chilled. Once this is done, roll it out with a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface. Spread a quite generous amount of butter on top with hands until dough is completely caked with butter. Starting from center, cut dough like you would a pizza and roll, starting with wide side of piece. Let rise another two hours and bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
