I happened upon this website when I was looking for a crescent roll recipe and I have already fallen in love!
The recipe at first threw me because they call them butterhorn rolls, but they are made the exact same way as crescent rolls. My daughter says that they taste better than crescent rolls.
- 1 cup lukewarm water
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1 tbsp yeast
- 1 cup milk
- ½ cup oil
- ½ cup sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 5 cups flour
- 1 tsp salt
- Dissolve and let stand for 10 min.
- cup lukewarm water
- tsp sugar
- tbsp yeast
- Heat and cool to lukewarm:
- cup milk
- /2 cup oil
- /2 cup sugar
- large eggs
- Meaure into bowl:
- cups flour
- tsp salt
- Add the yeast, milk and egg mixture to the flour mixture. I start with 5 cups of flour then keep adding more as needed, approx another 1½ cups.
- Knead till smooth, soft but not sticky consistency, about 5 min.
- Let rise in warm place till doubled..approx 1½ hrs.
- Knead down and let rise again till doubled…approx 1 hr.
- Cut pieces of dough and roll into size of large pie crust approx ¼” thick (or alittle bit less). Butter lightly.
- Cut into 8 wedges. Roll up each wedge, starting with wide edge and make sure that the pointed end is well tucked and pinched under the roll.
- I sometimes have not done this well enough and some of the rolls will open up during the rising process and end up looking a little odd..these are not served to guests..grin
- Let rise again till doubled in size.
- Bake at 400º for approx 10 to 12 min or until golden in color.
After making them, I went ahead and cooked them all in the oven. I let them cool and then I put them in a large freezer bag so that I could freeze them. Then when I need some for dinner, I pop out what I need, let them thaw, and then warm them in the oven.
Kayla has even been caught getting one down and warming it in the microwave when she wants a little bread taste!
This is a great money-saving tip. Making your own bread from biscuits, rolls, and now loaves of bread will save money in the long run and it winds up being so much better for you!
