Homemade Buttery Crescents

Have you ever dreamed about making your own homemade buttery crescents for your family to enjoy with breakfast or supper? It’s much easier than you think!

I’ve been craving a nice light fluffy crescent. It would be so easy to just buy the little tube at the store and plop them in the oven but have you looked at what’s in those things? Scary! So here is a yummy easy recipe for buttery crescents. Enjoy!

Homemade Buttery Crescents

What you need:

  • 1 T. yeast
  • 1 t. sugar
  • 1/2 c. warm water
  • 1/2 c. warm milk
  • 1/2 c. butter, softened or melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 4 c. flour
  • 1/3 c. sugar (or sugar alternative)

Mix together the yeast, the warm water, and 1 t. sugar. Let it sit for 5 minutes.

Mix together all the other ingredients besides 2 cups flour. Add in the yeast mixture and stir well. It will be a very soupy dough.

Add the last 2 cups of flour and knead. If you are kneading by hand, knead for about 6-8 minutes, if you are kneading in a mixer, knead for 4-5 minutes. Then put the dough in a warm place and cover and let rise for 1 hour.

When the dough is done, break it into 2 halves and roll each half into a circle. Make it about a big as a pizza.

Cut it into 12 pieces, just like a pizza! I even used the pizza cutter to make the slices.

Roll up each piece from the big end to the little end.

Place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350F for about 11 minutes or until lightly browned.

After they come out of the oven you can spread a little butter on top each of them. Yummy!
