These Homemade Crescent Rolls are light and fluffy and flakey! This recipe makes a large batch, great for a crowd or for freezing some for later.
I love these crescent rolls because they are so easy to make and are fluffy and delicious. They are the perfect side dish to any meal, I especially love to make them as a Sunday dinner side. The warm buttery smell fills the house as they bake and brings the whole family to the dinner table. It’s impossible to eat just one, watch out because it is hard to resist having just one more!
Can Crescent Roll Dough Be Frozen?
Did you know that you can freeze crescent roll dough? This recipe makes a large batch, so I like to freeze half of the dough after rolling them into crescents. When you’re ready to use them, just thaw the rolls, let them rise, and bake!
How to Make Homemade Crescent Rolls
Homemade Crescent Rolls
- In large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the butter, dry milk powder, sugar, potato flakes, eggs, salt, and some flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
- Turn onto a heavily floured surface; knead 8-10 times. Roll into two 12in. circles and cut each circle into 12 wedges. Roll up wedges, starting at widest end first, to form a crescent shape.
- Let rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled. Bake @ 350 degrees for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown.
