“A quick crescent dough ready to roll in under 20 minutes... Adapted from the recipe found here:”
16 Rolls

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Heat the water and butter in a microwave safe glass. Whisk together the buttermilk and eggs in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in the hot water/butter. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
  3. When your dough is ready, split it in two balls and lay it on a floured surface. Roll each half out into a large circle. Use a pizza cutter to make triangles.
  4. Roll them up and put them on a baking sheet. Let rise in a draft free place for about 25 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  6. Bake at 10 to 15 minutes.  Use your butter to rub across the top of each roll for an extra buttery taste!
