You are thinking byob has something to do with booze. Well, not in this case so get your head out of the wine glass and into the KitchenAid mixer! It’s bake your own bread time! 

Have you ever made your own bread before? Until this weekend, I would have answered “no.” I’m proud to have a different answer now with this flaky crescent roll pictured above! Woohoo! Now, I do need to be honest with you. These rolls require a number of steps. Is it hard to make them? No, but they are time consuming! Don’t try to squeeze this recipe in right before you need to go somewhere because it definitely won’t work. Let this be a weekend thing, for sure.

 Recipe was adapted from Eat Live Run


  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 3/4 cup warm milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp shortening
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 6 Tbsp softened butter


  1. In small bowl, combine yeast, warm water and 1/2 tsp sugar. Let mixture thicken and become foamy.
  2. In KitchenAid mixer, combine milk, egg, shortening, salt and sugar.
  3. Add flour and incorporate.
  4. Next, add yeast and allow dough to form. This will take a few minutes and be sure to use the bread hook for this.
  5. Once dough is formed, place in greased bowl and cover, refrigerating for 30 minutes.
  6. Remove from refrigerator and roll out on floured surface.
  7. Spread 6 Tbsp softened butter onto dough.
  8. Fold into threes, place back in bowl and store another 30 minutes.
  9. Do this 3 more times skipping the spreading butter step.
  10. Last time, roll out rolls on floured surface and create triangles in dough with pizza cutter.
  11. Roll triangles starting at wide end creating crescent rolls.
  12. Coat rolls with water/egg wash mixture.
  13. Place on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350F for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  14. ENJOY!

  1. These crescent rolls look divine – I love baking my own bread! ^^ I especially love how easy the recipe is as most others are too complicated for me.
