Homemade Crescent Rolls Recipe


  • 1 packet active dry yeast or 2 1/4 teaspoon
  • 1 teaspoon sugar plus 3 tablespoons
  • 1/2 cup warm water 110°F
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup warm milk 110°F
  • 1 egg room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/2 to 4 cups flour
  • milk for brushing


  1. Combine yeast, 1 teaspoon sugar, and warm water. Let sit for 10 mins or until foamy.
  2. Add melted butter, remaining 3 tablespoons sugar, and warm milk to a large bowl. Add yeast mixture, egg and salt. Stir in 2 cups of flour.
  3. Add flour 1/2 cup at a time to create a soft dough. Knead until smooth, about 5-7 minutes.
  4. Place dough in a greased bowl and cover. Let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  5. Place dough on a lightly flour surface and divide in two. Roll each half into a 12″ circle and cut each circle into 12 wedges.
  6. Roll wedges into a crescent shape starting with the wide end. Place at least 2″ apart on a parchment lined pan. Cover with a kitchen towel and allow to rise 30-40 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 350°F. Brush with milk and bake rolls 10-12 minutes or until golden.
