No-Fail Rolls

These rolls are super yummy...but the BEST part about them is that YOU CANNOT MESS THEM UP! If you don't think you can successfully make homemade rolls...then these are the ones for you! Seriously! The recipe calls for a total of 2 hours of rising time...but, if you don't get around to them for 5 hours...they STILL WORK!

Crescent Rolls
Nikie Elwood

1 cup (2 cubes) softened butter or margarine
2 cups hot water
3/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp salt
Mix until frothy.

2 cups flour and mix well
2 Tbsp yeast and another 2 cups flour and mix well
3 eggs and another 3-4 cups flour and mix well

Let raise 1 hour. Cut into 3 sections. Roll into a circle and with a pizza cutter divide the dough into 16 slices. (I often divide my dough into 4 sections and then do 12 slices...) Roll each slice into a crescent starting at the fatter end and rolling towards the thinner end. Let rolls raise 1 additional hour. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes. Yields 4 dozen.

  1. Hey,
    I'm on Chantel's computer looking at your blog! I feel honored to have a recipe make a cooking blog, however, I got the recipe from Jill Blotter, who got the recipe from a girl named Stef when they were living in Ohio! Have you tried Lion House rolls? I think they are just as good and easier to make. You guys have a great blog!
