2 tablespoons warm water -- (110'-115')
2 cups warm milk -- (110'-115')
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg -- beaten
1 teaspoon salt

Punch dough down and divide in half.
On a floured surface, roll each half into a 12-in. circle.
Cut each circle into 12 pie-shaped wedges. Beginning at the wide end, roll up each wedge. Place rolls, point side down, 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets.
