Sweet Potato Crescents
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 15 min.
We really enjoyed these! I used 2 cups of sweet potatoes that I cooked and pureed; they were leftovers, so I warmed them slightly in the microwave, to about 100F. I accidentally left out the shortening (which I was going to change to butter anyway and then forgot to add it), but the croissants were still really good. My husband thinks I should try them again "the right way" so he can give an accurate rating! I'll have to wait till I have sweet potatoes again, though.
These look so yum! Looking forward to trying them. Can anyone tell me how much mashed sweet potato to use in cups. We don't get the tinned ones around here. Also, any thoughts on replacing the shortening with Margerine or oil? Thanks!
With the unanimous 5 star rating, I was excited to make these. I had a difficult time with the dough being extremely sticky. I ended up adding about 7 cups of flour. I was expecting them to be light and fluffy like so many of the reviews describe (similar to canned crescents) , but I thought they were pretty heavy. I figured all that flour made them dense and considered throwing them out, but my husband commented that they were good so I went ahead and froze them. I have since reheated them many times and they are delicious! Still not light and fluffy, but tasty as can be. I will use canned sweet potatoes next time.
These were a big hit for Thanksgiving. Highly recommend.
Made these for Thanksgiving... When it came time for leftovers, the rolls were the most requested!
I have made these rolls for years and they are always wonderful. I usually forget to brush the melted butter in before rolling them into crescents! Still fantastic.
Delicious. This made a lot of rolls. I did freeze and followed the recipe for freezing from the button rolls.
Used our own sweet potatoes! We loved them they were so light and fluffy! I used bread flour. I have been looking for a crescent roll recipe and now I found it! I will be making them again!
My family loves these! I have been making them for years.
