This is a wonderful yeast dough that is layered with margarine (you can substitute butter),folded over and rolled into a crescent shape. This recipe is made with juice to keep it Mezonos. It is delicious served plain with butter or cream cheese. You can add any filling inside or a jam glaze on the outside for different variations. This recipe has a flakier taste, similar to a French croissant. I like to make this for before and after a fast. It freezes very well.

INGREDIENTS













  • 5 cup Flour










  • 4 oz margarine-1 stick










  • 1½ oz fresh yeast










  • 4 eggs










  • 1 cup orange juice










  • ½ cup sugar










  • ¾ tsp salt










  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar










  • - filling:










  • 1 cup flour










  • 12 oz margarine-3 sticks










  1. Mix in mixer dry ingredients- flour,salt,yeast, and sugar. Add 1 stick margarine, eggs and orange juice. Mix well. Add more flour if dough is too sticky.



  2. Place in floured bowl and let rise 1/2 hour covered.



  3. Roll out dough into a rectangle shape. Smear 3/4 of filling(3 sticks margarine plus 1 cup flour mixed) and fold dough over in a third. Refrigerate a few hours or overnight.



  4. Divide dough into 4 parts. Roll each out into a circle. Smear a little of filling unto each circle-just not in the center.



  5. Cut each circle into 8 or 16 pieces-depending on size you want. Roll up each, from thicker part to thinner part. Shape into moon shape.



  6. Cover and let rise for 1/2 hour. This can be brushed with an egg wash or can be baked without the egg wash. I like them shiny, so I egg wash it. You can add any toppings-sesame,poppy or bake plain.



  7. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes-until brown.
