Add only enough flour to be able to knead wit out sticking. place in a greased bowl, greasing all areas of bread dough. Let double in size. Cut in half. Roll each half into a circle and brush with butter. Cut in half, then into quarters. Cut each quarter into thirds. Starting with largest end, roll to form a crescent. Place on baking sheet.
