Heavenly Rolls (illuna)

1 T yeast
1/4 c warm water
1/2 t & 1/2 c sugar, divided
1 c warm milk
1/2 c vegetable oil
1/2 c sugar
1 t salt
1 c flour
2 eggs
3 – 4 c flour
butter, melted

Mix yeast with warm water and 1/2 t sugar. Let stand until bubbly. In a large bowl mix warm milk, oil, 1/2 c sugar, salt with a wooden spoon. Add 1 c flour to mix and mix well. Add 2 eggs and beat until smooth (mix vigorously be hand). Add yeast mix and mix vigorously until smooth. Add 3 – 4 c flour to the yeast mix. Dough should be very sticky. Pour the dough into a large bowl. Cover with a tea towel and let rise for a few hours until it has doubled in size. Once the dough has doubled in size punch down and divide in half. Roll dough onto a floured surface making a circle about 12″ round. Dough should be about 3/8″ thick. Brush dough with melted butter. Cut circles with a pizza cutter into 12 pieces (like a pizza). Roll from rounded edge to the point to make a crescent roll. Place into a greased pan. Cover dough with a tea towel and let rise for a few hours until it doubles in size. Bake at 375 F until light lightly browned, which is about 15 – 20 min. Note: Touch rolls to see if they bounce back – if they do not, bake a little longer. Brush with melted butter right away while warm.
