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
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.
Stir the the 1/2 cup oil.

Add 4 cups all-purpose flour & stir until combined. At this point it will be pretty runny still, don’t worry that is how it is suppose to look!
Crescent Rolls Dough
Let sit covered overnight.
Dinner Rolls from Scratch
In the morning you will have nice raised dough.
NOTE: It is not dough to knead so it will not have the same elasticity or density of traditional bread. Don’t worry, it looks just right ot make nice, delicate angel rolls that are light, fluffy, moist, and delicious!
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.
One ball at a time, roll the dinner rolls dough out like a large pie crust.
Homemade Rolls Recipe
Cut each large circle into 16 wedges .I like to use a pizza cutter for a quick, easy process.
Dinner Roll Dough
Now roll each 1/16th elongated triangle section from wide edge to thin edge – making a crescent roll.
Yeast Rolls from Scratch
Spray cookie sheet with Pam and place rolls 12-16 per cookie sheet. I know they look small now, but they will double! .
**Set aside and let rise until after church (about 4 hours).
Homemade yeast Rolls
Bake rolls at 375 F in a preheated oven for about 10 minutes. You want them to be lightly browned on the top, but don’t overbake. Allow to cool 2 minutes on the cookie sheet and serve warm. They will keep fresh for up to 5 days in an Ziploc bag. YUM!
Note: You can hurry recipe by adding 2 packages yeast & mixing in the am & making at noon.
Angel Rolls Recipe
These rolls look like the crescent rolls you get from a can, but taste Oh, so much better! The best part is you start them the night before so they rise while you sleep and then they rise a 2nd time in the morning while you are at church or in this case, prepping your Thanksgiving meal.
