Butter Crescent Roll
When I used to cater (a long time ago), I would make these homemade Crescent Rolls for most of the events. Guests knew they were in for a great meal when they got homemade rolls to start. Not like those you find in the refrigerated section of your grocer, they are tender and soft with a buttery flavor. This recipe makes 16 Crescent rolls:1/2 cup Warm Water
Add to yeast and stir well: 1/4 cup Butter, melted, cooled 1/4 cup Sugar 1 Egg and 1 Egg Yolk beaten 1/2 tsp. Salt
Gradually add and mix well: 2-1/4 cups Bread Flour
Divide the dough in 1/2. Roll each into a flattened ball. Leave the dough to relax on the counter covered with plastic wrap for 15 minutes.
Roll each ball of dough into a 12″ round circle. With pizza wheel or knife, cut each round into 8 wedges. Roll each wedge up from the wide end to the point. Place on parchment lined sheet pan, point down. Brush each with melted butter. Allow to rise for 1 hour or until doubled.
Bake in 375 degree oven for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
