Best Crescent Roll Recipes from Scratch

I have the best homemade crescent roll recipes from scratch that are buttery and soft.

Offering several homemade bread recipes including my popular homemade fruit bread recipes.

Crescent Roll Recipes


1 cup homemade mashed potatoes
1 (.25oz) pkg active dry yeast
1-1/2 cups warm water
2/3 cups white sugar

2/3 cup shortening
2 eggs
1-1/2 tsp salt
6-1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup homemade unsalted butter, melted

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, approximately 10 minutes.

When yeast is ready, mix in the mashed potatoes, sugar, shortening, eggs, salt, and 3 cups flour. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until dough has become stiff but still pliable.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. At this point, you may use a dough hook on your mixer instead of hand kneading.

Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl, and turn to coat with oil. Cover with plastic wrap and place in a warm area, letting the dough rise until doubled in size.

Deflate the dough, and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough in half, and form into 12 inch rounds. Brush generously with melted butter, and cut each circle into 8 wedges.

Roll wedges up tightly, starting with the large end. Place on lightly greased baking sheets with the points underneath, and the ends bent to form a crescent shape. Cover, and let rise for 1 hour.

PREHEAT oven to 400 degrees. Cover rolls loosely with foil and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, removing the foil 1 minute before they are done or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter. You may also mix cinnamon into the butter, and top with sugar

Do You Want To Use A Bread Machine?

I cut all the ingredients in half, put everything in the bread maker and processed on the "dough" cycle. I use one full tablespoon of yeast as per my machine manufacturer's recommendations, and I have exchanged whole wheat flour for half of the flour. So bake away.
