Butter Crescent RollsPreparation time: 60 mins. + 1 hr. Dough resting time | Serves 32 rolls

These are the homemade Breakfast Crescent Rolls filled with butter flavor. You can make a variety of stuffed crescent rolls using this recipe; for instance, you can use chocolate, chicken spread, and cream cheese spread for stuffing the roll.


12 oz all-purpose flour (bread flour is preferred)
2 tsp instant yeast
2 oz lukewarm water
6 oz warm milk
1½ tbsp sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp salt
4 oz butter (softened and divided)
1½ tbsp melted butter
1 egg white for brushing


1. Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water with sugar and leave it for 5 mins. until it gets frothy.
2. Take a large mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, and yeast mixture, and mix well.
3. Add in milk and egg and mix well using your hands. Then add 2 oz softened butter and knead the mixture until it forms a smooth and soft dough.
4. When the dough is ready, keep it in a deep bow, cover it with a plastic sheet, and keep it in a warm place for an hour or until it rises to double in size.
5. After that punch the dough down and divide it into two equal portions, make balls of these two portions.
6. Take one of a ball and roll it to make a 16-inch circle, spread half of the remaining softened butter over the whole circle, and reserve the remaining softened butter for the second ball. Cut it into 16 equal triangles using a pastry wheel cutter just like you do for pizza.
7. Now take a piece of a triangle, make a slit at the wider side, and then start rolling from the same side till it reaches the endpoint. Slightly turn the two corners inside just like the shape of the letter C.
8. Similarly roll the remaining triangles and place them onto the greased baking tray, keeping a 1-inch distance between each roll. Brush the rolls with melted butter and egg white, cover the tray with a damp cloth, and leave it as it is for 15 mins.
9. Place the tray in preheated oven at 400 degrees F for just 12-15 mins. or until becomes golden brown from the top.
10. When the rolls are done, cool them to room temperature and serve them with tea.
