Tracey's First Place Crescent Rolls

You Will Love These Delicious "Award Winning" Crescent Rolls

Our church group recently held its annual Chili-Cookoff.  The organizers asked for folks to make different dishes and foods to supplement the chili.  Tracey and Quinton decided to make some delicious whole wheat  crescent rolls.  We didn't know that judges would be on hand to award the best dishes and foods, but we were later surprised by some great news.  These amazing rolls were the best there and captured first place!

Here is the recipe:

Award Winning Whole Wheat Crescent Rolls

One Dozen Rolls

1/2 cup Milk

1/2 cup Butter Softened

1/4 cup Honey

1/2 teaspoon Real Salt

3 teaspoons SAF Instant Yeast

1/2 cup Warm Water

1 Large Egg Lightly Beaten

3 1/2 - 4 cups Prairie Gold Flour

In a pot, heat milk on medium heat until bubbles appear on edges.  In the mixing bowl, combine butter, honey and salt.  Add in milk.  In a separate bowl combine the SAF Instant Yeast and warm water.  Allow the yeast to dissolve.  Add yeast mixture and egg to the mixing bowl and mix on low speed.  Add 2 Cups of Flour until smooth.  Add remaining Flour until the dough pulls away from bowl.  Knead the dough, put in a greased bowl, let rise for an hour and punch down.  Divide dough in half and let rest for ten minutes.

Next, roll out dough into a circle on a floured surface and cut into six triangles:


Start at the large side and roll toward the thin side:


Continue rolling:


The roll should then look like this:


Next, form the rolls into crescent shapes and let rise for 3o minutes:


Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes until golden brown:


We like to brush a bit of butter at the end for even tastier results:


These rolls make kids happy!
