Crescent Rolls Recipe

All you need to whip up these amazing dinner rolls with a cute crescent roll shape are a few common ingredients you probably already have on hand in your home kitchen!

  • dry yeast package
  • warm water
  • milk

  • sugar
  • salt
  • flour

pour proofed yeast into egg mixture

Angel Rolls

Start by whipping up your dough the Night Before (1st Rise). Combine package of yeast in warm, not hot, water and allow to get puffy for 5 minutes untouched. Next, in a mixer beat together 2 large eggs, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 cup scalded warm milk (not hot) .

HINT: I typically heat milk, in glass measuring cup, using a microwave for 2 minutes. Then allow it to cool on the counter while I wait for the yeast to proof. You can also hasten the process by putitng a couple ice cubes in a ziplock bag and popping that in the milk like a tea bag.

divide dough in half

The following morning, put your dough on floured board and turn several times. You don’t want to add any more flour than you need to; no kneading! Divide the dough into 2 parts.

Do not work flour into dough – the less extra flour you use the moister the rolls will be.
