Easy Crescent Rolls
Most recipes for crescent rolls require a lot of tedious work to layer butter into the dough before baking. But there is an easier, faster version that yields rolls just as rich and buttery.
Why This Recipe Works
After dozens of tests, we determined that a precise measurement of melted butter delivered great butter flavor to our Easy Crescent Rolls without stickiness. Instead of heavy cream, which made the rolls dense and muted the butter flavor, half-and-half was a perfect compromise for extra-tender rolls with big buttery taste. To boost the flavor of the final smear of butter, we sprinkled on a bit of salt.
