Frozen Crescent Rolls Recipe

I've made lots of homemade bread, but this recipe is my favorite - and my family's favorite, too! I usually triple the recipe and make a batch of dough ahead for holidays. I use this recipe to make cinnamon rolls, too.

I halved the recipe and made the dough in my bread machine, I used butter for the shortening, my family really enjoyed these, I am making more now to stock up my freezer!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 25, 2011

This is a very nice dough, easy work with. The taste is wonderful. I cut each wedge into 12 pieces to make a little bit larger roll.
