2 Tbs dry yeast
2 c warm water, divided
1 c instant powdered milk
1/2 c sugar
2 tsp salt
1/2 c butter, softened
6 c flour
In a small bowl, combine 1 cup of the warm water with yeast - set aside. Using the wire whisk attachment, mix remaining cup water, powdered milk, sugar, eggs, salt, and butter with one cup of the flour in mixing bowl. Mix in the softened yeast. Slowly add 2 more cups of flour.
Switch to the paddle attachment and add 2 more cups of flour.
Switch to the dough hook attachment and add the remaining cup of flour. Continue kneading the dough for 10 minutes (15 minutes if kneading by hand).
Place dough in an oiled bowl and cover with dishcloth. Now you're done with the longest part (and it probably only took 20 minutes)!! Let rise until double in size (about one hour).

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray 2 baking sheets with cooking spray... you're ready to make those rolls! Punch down dough (yes, literally) and divide in half. Roll out each half on a floured surface and cut with pizza cutter into 12 pieces - I cut into fourths and then cut each fourth into thirds.
Starting from the outside, roll each segment up crescent-style and place on greased cookie sheet.
No need to let the rolls rise any more - just pop them in the oven (350 deg.) for 12-14 minutes, until golden.
