Crescent Rolls/Eggless Crescent Rolls

For the second of breads,buns  and rolls theme I am sharing you a delicious crescent roll.My family loves the flaky croissants  available in the super market.But I was bit hesitate to try the amount of butter used  in the recipe and work involved.
When I was googling for some rolls,suddenly I remembered a recipe I tired long time back from a library book.But I couldn't find out the hand written note,so searched online and finally landed Cooking Classy.
Again I scaled down the measurement and made these rolls.These rolls are dangerously addictive,soft and light.The taste of the rolls were so close the store bought one but it was not flaky.It doesn't need any spread it can be eaten as such,but if you want some jelly or jam can be accompanied.
As my kiddo wanted some of the rolls to be with nutella I stuffed half of the batch with nutella.I gobbled two rolls as soon as it was out from the oven and couldn't stop myself munching these yummy rolls.Try these yummy rolls and now on to the recipe....................................

                                                                                      Crescent Rolls/Eggless Crescent Rolls

   Basic Information

   Preparation time ~ 30 minutes
   Proofing time ~ 1 hour 40 minutes
   Cooking time ~ 15-20 minutes
   Makes ~ 24 mini rolls


All purpose flour
21/4 cups+1 tbs
for dusting
Instant yeast
11/4 tsp
Unsalted butter
(room temperature )
6 tbs
3 tbs
Lukewarm milk
3/4 cup+1 tbs
3/4 tsp
Milk /butterfor brushing
Nutella (optional)2-3 tbs 

  • Take all purpose flour, 3 tbs of butter,instant yeast,salt and sugar in a bowl.To this add the lukewarm milk and mix it to a slightly sticky dough. 

  •  Now on a floured surface knead the dough for at least 5-7 minutes till it becomes smooth. Transfer to the bowl and keep it a warm place to raise for an hour to 90 minutes without getting disturbed.After an hour the dough would be doubled in size and if you make an indent on the dough it stays.

  • Now punch down the dough and divide it into 2 equal portions.On a floured surface roll the dough into a 10-12 inches circle.Spread evenly 1-11/2 tbs of butter on the circle.Cut the circle into four and cut each quarter to 3 wedges using a pizza cutter or knife.

  • Roll each wedge from the broader side as shown in the picture.Keep the tucked side in the bottom and transfer it to a baking tray.Continue for the rest of the wedges and arrange it on a backing tray.If you are using nutella keep a tsp of it on the broader side and roll it the same way.

  •  Cover the baking tray with a cling wrap and keep it in a warm place for another hour to let it raise. Before 10 minutes of the second raise pre heat the oven at 375 F and brush the rolls with milk or egg.Bake it for 15-20 minutes in the preheated oven (mine too exactly 19 minutes).Once its done brush it with butter and remove it.Cool it on a cooling rack.

  • Serve it with warm with a spread or butter.

  • The dough should be slightly stick,don't add too much of flour while kneading.
  • The rolls taste better when it is served warm,just microwave it for 5 seconds and serve. .
  • The sweetness was just perfect if you want it a bit sweeter version then add another tbs of sugar.
  • If you are using salted butter then no need to add the salt.
