Pour water and yeast into mixing bowl
Sprinkle salt and sugar over the yeast making it sink to the bottom and let it sit until bubbles form.
Once bubbles start forming, gently stir the sugar up from the bottom of the bowl
Mix egg and softened butter together and add to yeast water.
Set mixer on low using dough hook and slowly add flour 1/2 cup at a time until dough does not stick to the side of the bowl
Separate dough into two balls and let rest on flour dusted counter.
Grease two large baking sheets with butter
After sheets are greased, roll out one of the balls of dough into a circle until dough is between 1/8 and 1/4 inch thick.
Slather enough melted butter to cover the dough without pooling
Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough into 8 triangles, like you would a pizza.
Start with the outside edge of each piece and roll towards the center.
Place each roll onto the baking sheets and shape into a crescent.
Repeat with the other dough ball
Cover rolls and let them rise for AT LEAST 45 minutes but NO MORE than two hours.
Bake rolls in 400 degree oven for 10-12 minutes, until rolls are golden brown.
Remove from oven and brush with remaining butter.
