A few weeks I posted this super popular garlic butter cheesy crescent rolls recipe using Pillsbury instant crescent rolls in a tube.
Many readers have emailed me and wanted to try the recipe, but there is a problem.
They can’t find crescent rolls where they are.
Many asked for an easy homemade crescent rolls recipe, and so I decided to attempt these amazing rolls at home.
I am not a great baker so I turned to Home Cooking Adventure for her recipe.
I love it that she has a video so I could see every step of the process.
The recipe is super easy to follow and actually very simple.
So now that you have the crescent rolls recipe, you can try to make garlic butter cheesy crescent rolls or just plain crescent rolls.

Easy Crescent Rolls
- 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 25 g active dry yeast
- 1/3 cup water (warm)
- 3/4 cup milk (warm)
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons butter (softened)
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 1/2 tablespoons butter (melted)
- In a large bowl, mix the flour with sugar and salt. Dissolve the fresh yeast in the warm water and add to the flour mixture. Add the eggs and milk, mix everything together. Add the butter and knead until the dough is smooth and soft. Cover with a clean towel and let it rise for about 1 hour in a warm area, until doubled in size.
- Punch dough down and divide into 2 equal parts. Form them into balls. On a floured surface, roll each part into a 16 to 17 inch round, using a rolling pin. With the back of a spoon, spread about 2 tbsp of very soft butter onto the dough round. Using a pizza or pastry cutter, cut the round into 16 triangles.
- Start rolling each triangle into crescents. Once rolled, curve the edges and place on a cookie sheet or baking tray lined with parchment paper with the tip tucked down and under the roll. Repeat rolling with the rest of the triangles. Let them rise for about 20 minutes. Melt an additional 1 1/2 tablespoons butter and brush the tops of the rolls with the melted butter.
- Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Bake for 14-18 minutes until puffed and golden brown. Let them cool on a wire rack for a few minutes before serving.

If I use instant dry yeast instead, what’s the quantity to use ?? Thanks
Should be fine.
thank you for your reply Bee.
now i do not need to go buy the ones from the store for my
different recipes calling for crescent roll dough or crescent sheets.
i can just put the fillings in these and bake them.
Yes, so easy and so good, thanks Heather.
these look good.
i have a couple of questions do i put the active fry yeast in with the warm water and milk so it can proof and become active like i would in other bread and roll recipes? if so how long do i let the active dry yeast proof for? you do not say in your directions for this recipe,
i will be using active dry yeast for this recipe.
please let me know by e-mailing me at
Yes, correct. Proof until they become foamy, about 5-10 minutes.
