Crescent Rolls Recipe

We made these crescent rolls on Thanksgiving. They were so good, I had to share them with you again. Because you might want to make them for Christmas.

The recipe makes a bunch of rolls. We baked a batch for Thanksgiving day, then rolled the rest out, put them on a baking sheet, and stuck them in the fridge for the next day. All you have to do is set them out to rise for a few hours and bake them when you're ready.

It's a great recipe to make with kids. Even boys. They can use their brut strength to roll the dough. You do need to allow some time though. It takes 3 hours to make them. So keep that in mind. Don't be intimidated by the time. This is a good rainy day/snow day activity.

The dough is really easy to make. You do have to use yeast but it's really forgiving. I screwed it up and they came out great. I misread the instructions and put 2T of sugar with the yeast and water. It was supposed to be 1/2 teaspoon.

And the best part? You get to eat these little buttery, flaky rolls of goodness.

Delicious. Made by you and your kids. Just think how impressed your mother-in-law will be.

  1. Mmm, those look delicious! Going to have to try them out on the recipe I usually use store-bought dough for - ham & cheese roll-ups. Extra yum!
