Easy Homemade Rolls (half batch)

From the kitchen of my Aunt Kaye, which you know is always going to be good. These rolls are my first attempt at bread making, and they are so easy they have even inspired me to try a few other bread recipes (I can do this!)

1 1/4 c. warm water
1 Tbl yeast
1/4 c. oil
1/4 c. sugar
1 egg
1/4 c. instant powdered milk
1 tsp. salt
3 cups flour

Stir the first 7 ingredients with a wire whisk in a large mixing bowl. Add 2 cups flour with wire whisk. Add 1 more cup of flour and stir with wooden spoon. Dough will be very sticky. Do not knead. Let sit covered on counter covered with lid for 1.5 - 2.5 hours or until dough doubles in size. Scrape down edges with flat wooden spoon and turn onto floured counter. Roll into a circle. Cover with a small amount of melted butter (1-2 Tbl.) and cut with pizza cutter into 16 crescents. Roll wide sides to point. Place on greased cookie sheet and raise 40 minutes on pan, or until rolls double in size. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 9-10 minutes, or until rolls just begin to brown on top.

Makes 16 crescent rolls.
