Butterhorn Crescent Rolls


2 to 4 Tbsp sugar
3 Tbsp oil
1 tsp salt (optional)
1 1/2 cups warm water or unflavored milk sub
2 Tbsp yeast
4 cups flour

Whisk together sugar, oil, salt, warm liquid and yeast. Let the yeast "proof", or get all bubbly and start to grow, for about 5 minutes.

Stir in the flour and form into a ball. Let rise for about 1/2 hour in a warm place.

Separate the ball into 2 equal portions. Roll out on a lightly floured board into a circle. Use a pizza cutter or a knife to cut into pizza triangle wedge shapes. You can at this time brush them with safe margarine, or I brush with oil and lightly salt. You can also just skip that step!

Roll each triangle, from the fat end to the skinny end, into a crescent roll. Let rise again for about 1/2 hour. Bake at 375 °F until light golden brown - about 20min. (Time could vary - I use Airbake pans for these).

This is a recipe that has been handed down in my family for years... and they are easy and I always have the ingredients on hand.

I have not made these wheat free.

Use any oil, milk sub or just water to meet your family's needs.

Milk and Soy Substitutions: Alternative dairy-free milk beverages and products will work in most recipes. Find out more about milk substitutions and soy substitutions.

Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.

 Keep in Mind  
  1. Always read labels! Product ingredients can change without notice. Do not assume a recipe or product is safe for you. Contact manufacturers to confirm safety for your allergy needs.
  2. A check in a box on a recipe means you can make a recipe "free of" that allergen. You may need to use a substitution or alternative product to make that recipe safe for the allergies you are managing.
  3. If you need assistance with a recipe or ingredient substitution, post on our Food & Cooking support forums. You will receive personal help to alter a recipe to make it allergy-free for your child’s needs.

Would this work gluten-free? Don't know if anyone else has tried making them GF or not...

Thea - I don't know if anyone has tried this one gluten free. I know it's been my list to try! If you do try it, be sure to let us know what flour mix you use and how it turns out.
