Crescent Dinner Rolls


As promised, I’m posting my recipe for the crescent dinner rolls. The original recipe also came from my friend Tammy at Frugal Families, but I modified it a bit and we like it much better this way.

This is another very easy bread recipe. They’re easy to make, and they freeze well! Just freeze after rolling them up, and then pull out the desired amount about 1-1/2 hours or so before dinner time (depending on the temp in your house). They thaw quickly and rise quickly. I love keeping these in my freezer to use when I can’t/don’t want to spend all day in my kitchen. I hope you enjoy these.

Crescent Dinner Rolls

1 cup hot water
1/2 cup honey
1 stick butter, melted
4-1/2 to 5 cups bread flour
1 tsp salt
2 Tbs yeast
3 eggs
1/2 stick butter, softened
  1. Pour honey & butter in mixing bowl; add hot water and stir well.
  2. Add 2 cups of flour, salt, & yeast; mix on low. Beat in eggs 1 at a time on medium speed until well incorporated. Add remaining flour and mix well.
  3. Place dough in well greased bowl and let rise until doubled in size. Divide dough into thirds. Roll each third into a 12-inch circle. Spread each circle with softened butter. Cut each circle into 16 wedges. Roll each wedge from large end to point. Place point side down on baking sheet; let double in size.
  4. Bake at 375* for 10 to 12 minutes, or until light golden brown. You can brush tops with butter to soften if you want.

If you want to freeze these, freeze after rolling up. Do not let rise again. To thaw, pull out amount desired, place on baking sheet, and let thaw and double in size. This will take about an hour or so, depending on the temp inside the house. Bake as directed above.

  1. I plan to update with a picture when I pull some out in a couple of days, or if I get a chance to make some more this weekend. This week was too crazy and I was making too many items at once. I managed to forget the picture taking this time.


  2. What a terrific recipe. I'll be back to see your photo. You have a lovely blog. I'm amazed you are able to do this kind of baking with small children around to "help" you. Kudos and blessings…Mary
