Rolls....

This recipe is Nicoles sisters. Nicole made these for Easter and they were so good. I made them for dinner tonight, and they didn't disappoint. This picture is one that Nicole took of hers. I didn't make them into croissants, I just don't have time (or patience) to make them pretty right now. I just dropped them in balls on the baking sheet, and they were still tasty. Thanks Nicole for a great recipe!!!!
Ingredients:
1 cup water
1 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. salt
1 cold cup of water
2 pkgs. yeast ( or I used 4 1/2 teaspoons)
1/2 cup warm water
4 eggs (beaten)
7 1/2 cups flour
butter for the tops
Directions:
In a 6 quart pan bring 1 cup of water to a boil then add the 1 cup of butter, sugar and salt to the pan. Take it off the heat and add 1 cold cup of water. Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup of warm water. When the first mixture is luke warm you add the yeast mixture and eggs. Stir for a second. Then add the flour. Stir together. Cover pan and refrigerate over night.
Divide it into 3rds. Roll it out into a circle and cut with a pizza cutter into triangle for croissants or make whatever shape you want. Butter the cookie sheets. Then let them rise for 4 hours and top with melted butter.
Place them on baking sheets. 12 rolls per sheet.
Now pop them in the oven for 400 * degrees for 10 minutes.
