Crescent Rolls

crescent rollsLast week I desperately wanted a crescent! But, I can’t get myself to spend the money on the canned ones and I haven’t been in love with any recipes yet. So, my little man and I went to the kitchen to create something that we prayed would turn out.
Here is the recipe we pieced together from several different recipes and a bit of our own flare. It’s nothing fancy, but they turned out great and were so easy to make. Kids gobbled them up for supper.
Andrew’s Crescents
1 cup warm water
1 cup warm milk
1 T honey
2 eggs
2/3 c. soft butter
2/3 c. sugar
2 tsp. salt
7 1/2 c. flour
2 packages yeast (4 1/2 tsp.)
1/2 c. soft butter
Dissolve sugar in water and milk and add the yeast and let sit for about 10 minutes until it’s foamy. Stir in egg, salt, 2/3 c. butter, and honey. Stir in the flour and knead dough for 5 minutes.
Place dough in a greased bowl and cover with a towel until doubled (about 1 hour). Divide dough in 1/2 on floured surface and roll into circle. Spread 1/4 c. butter on each round, spreading to the edges. Cut each circle into wedges and roll gently but tightly.
Let rise until doubled. Bake at 400 for 10-14 minutes.
They are amazing!
