Help needed: Making homemade crescent rolls
Shannon wrote to me with this question:
I was just wondering if you have ever experimented with making crescent rolls? There are a lot of fun recipes using the Pillsbury ones but I just refuse to buy them. They do taste good but I can't get beyond the expense or the fact that they're full of stuff I prefer not to eat. I did find a recipe one time that was supposed to be like them but except for being rolled and shaped the same they weren't anything alike.
Hi, Shannon! I'm going to have to refer you to my readers here, since I have actually never even tasted the store-bought crescent rolls that come in tubes!
I have made crescent-shaped rolls (very delicious cornmeal cescent rolls... a slightly sweet cornmeal yeast bread), but from looking at the label of the store-bought crescent rolls, I'm guessing they are greasier (hello, trans fat!!) and maybe flakey... ?? :)
Have any of you made crescent rolls that tasted like the ones from the tubes in the grocery store? And were they worth the effort? :)
