This recipe for Easy Homemade Crescent Rolls is light, flaky, and completely tube-free. These soft and fluffy dinner rolls will practically fly off the table. Although using premade dough may be the fastest way to make dinner rolls, this recipe for homemade rolls is much easier and quicker than the average bread recipe.

Did you Know?

It probably comes as no surprise to you that these rolls were so-called because of their half-moon shape, but you may not know how these popular rolls became the family dinner staple they are today. The original crescent-shaped pastry is the croissant, which are flaky and buttery rolls. Instead of being a dinner time favorite, croissants are most often served at breakfast alongside coffee or tea. Croissants are a French pastry, but many countries have their own versions of the crescent-shaped roll.

The type of crescent roll that is most popular in America are the small dinner rolls baked from pre-made dough. These are fluffier than the airy French variety of crescent rolls, but they still have a delicious buttery taste. The recipe above is a homemade version of American-style crescent rolls. To get the iconic crescent shape, you cut the dough into triangles, and then roll up the dough, starting at the wider end. While you are rolling up the dough, you can easily stuff your crescent rolls with chocolate or fruit filling if you want to serve them for breakfast or dessert, rather than alongside your dinner. There are many ways to enjoy crescent rolls!
