Golden Buttery Crescent Rolls Recipe

Golden Buttery Crescent Rolls Recipe

These golden brown rolls are my mother's bread of choice for holiday meals. No one in our extended family can imagine a celebratory meal without them. They have such a rich taste that you might not need to butter them! -Kevin Weeks North Palm Beach, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 15 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 to 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Additional butter, melted

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, butter, sugar, egg, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. 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. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Punch the dough down. Turn onto a floured surface; divide in half. Roll each portion into a 12-in. circle; cut each circle into 12 wedges. Roll up wedges from the wide end and place pointed end down 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Curve ends to form crescents. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 4. Bake at 375° for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 dozen (24 servings, 1 per serving).
