Crescent Dinner Rolls

These light, golden rolls have a heavenly homemade flavor and aroma. Mom never hesitates to whip up a batch of these from-scratch rolls, since they're a delightful way to round out a meal.


24 servings


1 (1/4 ounce) package active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water (110°F to 115°F/43°C to 46°C)
1 tablespoon plus 1/2 cup sugar, divided
3/4 cup warm milk (110°F to 115°F/43°C to 46°C)
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon salt
5 to 5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
melted butter


In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add 1 tablespoon sugar; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the milk, eggs, butter, salt and remaining sugar. Stir in enough flour to form a stiff dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 1/2 hours.

Punch dough down. Divide into thirds. Roll each into a 12-inch circle; cut each circle into eight wedges. Brush with melted butter; roll up wedges from the wide end and place, pointed end down, 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375°F (191°C). Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire cooling racks.
