Easy No Knead Crescent Rolls – Soft buttery crescent rolls made from scratch, ready in about 1 hour. No artificial ingredients. Homemade bread for the table or substitute for any recipe using refrigerated crescent rolls.
There’s nothing like golden brown delicious flaky buttery crescent rolls. Is that enough adjectives for you? Or should I maybe add soft, supple and amazing too? There you go. That sounds even better yet.
I’ve been wanting to put a crescent roll recipe on the blog but I really wanted a simple one. So many that I’ve come across are a 2 day process which is fine but….I need to keep some simple breads around. We don’t all have that much time to meet our bread and rolls satisfaction.
So after making this recipe I decided it was the perfect one to bring here and share with all of you. It was delicious, easy and ready in a little over an hour. We can handle that, right?
Now if you’re looking to spend more time on your bread then you must go check out my delicious crusty French bread baguettes. 2 day process but totally worth it! Or you can try these Artisan Ciabatta Rolls. Amazing as well.
These will make a perfect addition to your Easter or Christmas dinner. They will substitute well for the refrigerated tubes you find in a store. Yes! No added preservatives. Fresh and homemade. Just the way we like it.
Til we meet and eat again,
