Directions

  1. In a large bowl, sprinkle the yeast on the warm water and stir until dissolved. Stir in the melted butter. Beat in the eggs and sugar until well blended. Gradually mix in flour. Place dough in an airtight container and refrigerate for at least 3 hours and up to 3 days.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Mix together the 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon. Set aside. Divide dough into 6 equal parts. Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture into a shallow pan.
  3. Roll out dough into a circle on a flat surface to 1/8 inch thickness. Press dough into shallow pan and sprinkle again with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Cut dough into 8 wedges, as a pie. Sprinkle raisins on each wedge and roll each wedge, starting from widest to point, as a crescent roll. Place each roll on cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart. Let crescents stand 15 minutes before baking.
  4. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Let cool on wire racks.

BEWARE: Do not make this recipe as it stands - there is a line missing that will break your heart. The only liquid named is to soak the yeast in - there should be another amount (a cup or so) of milk or water too! You get bricks if you bake it as written.

I got a hard ball of nothing. Then I realized I should let set out, the dough was workable. I tried to bake some, very bland and tasteless. I am sure there is something missing here. sorry.
