Homemade Crescent Roll Recipe


1 packet active dry yeast
1/4 cup water (warm)
1/2 cup milk (warm)
1 tablespoon sugar
2 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons butter, room temp


1.   Combine water, milk, sugar and yeast in the bowl of a stand mixer. Let sit for 5 minutes. Add in bread flour and salt, mix for 2 minutes. Add butter and then mix again for about 2 minutes. Cover bowl and allow to rise for 45 minutes.

2.   Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and roll into a 12-inch circle. Like a pizza slice triangles. Starting with the flat (crust end) roll towards the point. This will form a crescent shape.

3.   Place on parchment lined sheet tray and brush with butter. Bake for 13 minutes. Remove and brush with butter. Allow to cool and serve.

The History of the Canned Biscuit

The first crescent roll pastry can be traced back to the 1400s in Austria where breakfast pastries called kipfel, were made with Brioche and were much denser and less flakey than the modern, Americanized croissant.

Marie Antoinette was said to enjoy kipfel in private when she married King Louis XIV, as she was unable to have any public ties to her homeland of Austria upon their union, and this delicacy reminded her of home. Rumor has it that pastry made its way to France, in part, because of Antoinette. Sweet pastries, a delicacy only enjoyed up until then by royalty and the like, became accessible to the common folk by the late 19th century and cafe culture in France began to include many craft pastry shops.

Fast Forward to present day, and our manufactured version of crescent rolls that come in a refrigerated tube at your local grocery store. How did this version spark into being? The former director of manufacturing for the refrigerated division at Pillsbury, Lowell Armstrong, and chemist, Lively B. Willoughby worked together during their time at Ballard & Ballard Co. to create and patent the first refrigerator biscuit dough in the 1930s. The product was first named, Ye Old Kentuckie Buttermilk Biscuits, and the patent lasted until 1948, at which point any company could make and sell the product.

Pillsbury eventually bought Ballard & Ballard Co. in 1951, expanding the product line of refrigerated products and continued to use the original process created by Willoughby. Back then, the originally marketed shelf life of the biscuits was about 2 weeks, but this has since increased to a shelf life of 2 to 3 months.
