I recently made Homemade Crescent Rolls.

I forgot to buy powdered milk so I looked online for ideas for a substitute. One website I found said to use milk instead of the water. So I used 1 cup of warm water and 1 cup of warm milk instead of the 2 cups of water the recipe calls for. It seemed to work.

Once you get the rolls rolled up the recipe says to let rise another 1 – 1 ½ hours. I didn’t need to let them rise that long.

Here is another recipe which i have not found. It calls for warm water and warm milk instead of dry milk in the other recipe. This one also has the second rise of 20 minutes instead of the longer rise in the other recipe.

On the Pillsbury website it says that baked crescent rolls can be frozen up to a month and reheated if you don’t use them all when you bake them.

I also put chocolate chips in some of them before I rolled them. They taste like the chocolate croissants I have had at Disney World and on cruises.

I used the second half of the dough to make a couple of other recipes Pecan bars and Cinnamon Sugar Pizza.

If you look online you can find a variety of recipes to make with crescent rolls such as pizza filled, smore, sausage and cheese filled and many more.

They take longer to make than purchased ones but the recipe makes the equivalent of 4 packages that would cost over $10. And they taste a lot better than purchased ones. You can do other things while they are rising. I baked the other two recipes during the final rising of the rolls.
