Summary: This will be your new go-to recipe for rolls. Buttery and melt in your mouth goodness is the perfect way to describe this crescent roll recipe.


  • 3 cups of white flour
  • 1 packet (2 tsp.) active dry yeast
  • 1 room temperature egg
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp. of salt
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  1. Combine flour, salt, and yeast in the bowl of your stand mixer.
  2. In a small saucepan add honey, milk, and 1/2 a stick of the butter and heat over medium-low heat. Heat until butter is just melted. (Should be warm to the touch but NOT hot)
  3. Add milk mixture and egg to the mixing bowl and combine using the paddle attachment for about 1 minute.
  4. Change to dough hook and knead on low for about 4-6 minutes.
  5. Dough should be very soft and slightly sticky. (You can adjust by adding more flour and/or warm water.)
  6. Remove from mixer and form into a ball. Move dough to a lightly grease bowl and cover with a moist towel. Allow to rise is a warm place until dough has doubled in size (about 1-2 hours depending on room temperature)
  7. Remove dough from bowl and move to a lightly floured surface. Lightly knead dough and separate into two dough balls.
  8. With a rolling pin flatten each ball, on a lightly floured surface, to a 12-inch circle.
  9. Cut each circle into 8-10 equal sized triangles. Melt remaining butter and lightly brush each triangle with melted butter.
  10. Loosely roll each triangle (from large end to the point) and shape into a crescent shape. Place on an ungreased baking sheet, cover, and allow to rise again for about 30-40 minutes.
  11. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until lightly brown.
  12. Gently brush with melted butter and serve warm.
