I've been craving a nice light fluffy crescent. It would be so easy to just buy the little tube at the store and plop them in the oven but have you looked at what's in those things? Scary! So here is a yummy easy recipe for buttery crescents. Enjoy!
What you need:
1 T. yeast
1 t. sugar
1/2 c. warm water
1/2 c. warm milk
1/2 c. butter, softened or melted
1/2 t. salt
4 c. flour
1/3 c. sugar (or sugar alternative)
Picture of the ingredients. Like I've mentioned before we try not to eat much sugar so in bread recipes I use More Fiber which comes from the stevia plant.
Mix together the yeast, the warm water, and 1 t. sugar. Let it sit for 5 minutes.
Mix together all the other ingredients besides 2 cups flour. Add in the the yeast mixture and stir well. It will be a very soupy dough.
Add the last 2 cups of flour and knead. If you are kneading by hand, knead for about 6-8 minutes, if you are kneading in a mixer, knead for 4-5 minutes. Then put the dough in a water place and cover and let rise for 1 hour.
When the dough is done, break it into 2 halves and roll each half into a circle. Make it about a big as a pizza.
Cut it into 12 pieces, just like a pizza! I even used the pizza cutter to make the slices.
Roll up each piece from the big end to the little end.
Place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350F for about 11 minutes or until slightly browned.
After the came out of the oven you can spread a little butter on top each of them. Yummy!
