Crescent Roll Recipe
0

19 posts in this topic

I'll try again:

Crescent Rolls

1/2 stick butter ( 1/4c) room temp.

3/4 c. small curd cottage cheese

1 c. gluten-free flour mix ( rice,potato starch,tapicoa )

1 tsp. xanthan gum

1/8 tsp salt

1/4 tsp cream of tartar

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 TBSP sugar

In mixer bowl combine butter & cottage cheese until well blended. Add dry ingredients. Mix until a ball forms.

Wrap in plastic wrap & chill for several hours.

On a lightly floured parchment paper, roll dough into a 14 inch circle. Cut into 8 triangles ( make sure to roll thin), Pizza cutter works well for cutting...

Roll each triangle from wide end to tip. Turn ends to make a crescent shape. Bake 350 for approx 20 to 30 min..

sorry for the first post but it is correct now. Yea, flour does help!!!!!!!!!!!

Mamaw, I just wanted to say that this is possibly my favorite recipe! It is SOOOOOO versatile. Its also really easy to double and triple. Out of one tripled batch I can make pizza crusts (delicious and tastes very similar to Pizza Hut's pan pizza without all the grease), crescent rolls, turnovers, and still have enough left to make a cinnamon bun. I LOVE THIS RECIPE! THANK YOU! The dough also stays nice in the fridge for days. I think I've left it in there for up to 4 days and have never had a problem. :)

This looks easy.... I no longer do much baking but might be willing to give this a try. Can you make up the pizza crusts, bake them with no toppings and freeze them for later use? Just curious... if you have never tried to do this, I may still give it a try and see if they can be frozen after being baked.

I think I would try freezing the dough, thaw, top, and bake. OR bake, freeze, top, reheat without thawing. Maybe I'll try both ways................

I haven't tried freezing, but I can tell you that I bake them first without toppings until lightly browned, then put toppings and sauce on to finish. I imagine you could freeze it after the first bake.

Hi Angie

I agree this is a terrific recipe. I also make hot pockets using a similar recipe.

2 c. betterbatter flour

1 tsp. salt

1 c. unsalted butter

4 tbsp cream cheese

8 tbsp. ice water.

combine flour, salt , butter, cream cheese in a food processor. Process until coarse crumbs form. ( I don't have a food processor so I just used my hands)

With processor running add ice water & process to form a dough. Turn out onto a floured board & press into a ball.

Divide dough in half, wrap tightly in plastic wrap & refridgerate at least a half hour.

Roll out to desire thickness.

Put a filling of your choice & roll or make shapes & seal them. I baked them for about 15 min or so at 350 degrees.

For filling I made several different ones. I used sandwich pepperoni, hard salami, & provolone cheese. I made some with peanut butter & jelly ( made these round so they looked like the clones). I did meat pasties, I did pizza sauce , green peppers, onions, mushrooms, & pepperoni & cooked drained sausage. These work great for school lunches.

Both these recipes originally came from Naomi Poe from betterbatter flour.

If you haven't tried her flour blend it is a one to one sub for wheat recipes. It is worth the price......

From first post:

"Crescent Rolls

1/2 stick butter ( 1/4c) room temp.

3/4 c. small curd cottage cheese

1 c. gluten-free flour mix ( rice,potato starch,tapicoa )

1 tsp. xanthan gum

1/8 tsp salt

1/4 tsp cream of tartar

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 TBSP sugar"

Regarding small curd cottage cheese. I tried a recipe using this recipe and couldn't get the curds to blend. There were yellow spots in my muffins. I'm wondering if one could use ricotta cheese instead? I love the ricotta cheese muffin recipe.

best regards, lm

I made those last night too! Here's a picture. My Husband thinks I am weird because I am always taking pictures of our food. :lol:

The recipe is originally from Delphi modified from the Better Batter Flour website. Has anyone tried any of their other recipes? Some of them look really good.

I think ricotta would work just fine. There is a recipe on the better batter site that uses ricotta, with all other recipe components being the same. I don't end up with lumps in my cottage cheese, but I do let my Kitchenaid whip the butter and cottage cheese for quite a while.

Can white rice flour be used in the gluten-free flour mix or do you use brown rice?

Yelloe Rose,

White rice four will work.

Larry Mac,

Ricotta works fine.

If you go onto betterbatter site there are clones for Krispy Kreme Donuts, soft pretzels, & loads more excellent recipes. The flour blend does just about anything one could hope for>>>>>>

I have also in the past used nut filling or fruit fillings & roll up the crossiants.

enjoy

I just wanted to add that this recipe makes THE BEST hamburger rolls that I've had since going gluten free. They were super easy to make also. I made three hamburger rolls and two personal sized pizzas out of a double batch (could have made 4 rolls and no pizzas). They are reminiscent of a kaiser roll (kind of). Very tasty! They don't quite seem done in the center when cut, but they definitely taste done and there's nothing in them that can't be eaten raw, so... I highly recommend trying them as hamburger buns. :)

Hi Angie

Did you just make a ball & flatten it a bit for the hamburger bun? Did you bake it any longer?

Have you tried Against The Grain rolls yet? They are soooo good for burgers, sloppy joe's, cold cuts & more...

I'm getting picky! I have Everybody Eats ficeille crusty rolls for pasta, ATG for sandwiches, gluten-free GreatBakes for Bagels & Eng. muffins, Anna's bread mix, & a batter bread (scratch) from gluten-free Living!!!! Plus Betterbatter flour!

Try the hot pockets , they are a winner at our house!!!

Yeah, I just made a big old dough ball, about the size of a thin hamburger roll and flattened it. It didn't rise a whole lot, but enough to cut in half. They were amazing! Very filling though, probably due to the cottage cheese and all that butter in the rolls. :) I really have no idea how long I baked them for. I just kept checking on them every few minutes until they were brown and crusty looking on top. ??? Maybe 25-35 minutes? I'm really not sure. I did bake them at the temp the recipe calls for if that helps.

I try not to buy the premade stuff just because of cost. That stuff is just so darn expensive. I don't think I've tried anything Grainless Baker. No one around here carries anything made by them and I try not to order stuff online because of shipping. I wish I had a Whole Foods or Wegmans really close by.

So far, that recipe you posted is probably my favorite. It is SO versatile! I can make pretty much anything with it that's supposed to be soft and bready. I even made pizza rolls (reminded me of Totino's, but not the same at all). I chopped up pepperoni and added mozzerella, parmesean, italian seasoning, and garlic then formed them into little biscuits and baked. They were SOOOOO good, the perfect snack food. :) I have the feeling that recipe might also make good soft pretzels, but I haven't tried it yet. I'm not sure how it will fair through boiling. I guess maybe one of these days I'll have to try it.

Anyway, my thanks goes out to you for the recipe. I never, ever would have thought to use cottage cheese in bread. :)

Hey Angie

Soft pretzels are on Naomi's site. SHe has the Auntie Anne's clone & another one. Her site is very good & informative as well. Do you belong to a support group? I know Naomi sells flour at the Lancaster group. I can't remember exactly where you are located....I had her at our group & everyone loved her..... She's only 30 & lots of fun, & knowledge....& owns a business to boot!!!!!

I live about 20 minutes outside of Lancaster city. I don't belong to a support group, mostly because I'm very awkward around people. I get anxious in new settings also, so I haven't joined one. (can you say asperger's? lol)

What is Naomi's site??? I SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO miss Auntie Anne's pretzels! I would do almost anything to have an exact replica. Any chance anyone knows how to duplicate their delicious sweet mustard?

Posting to an old thread, is that ok? Thank you for this recipe! Before my flare-up recently, I made a fantastic cheese danish using store bought crescent rolls. I'm craving it again! So glad I found this through the search field.

This is absolutely great and an easy recipe to follow. I use better batter

and this dough lasts in the fridge for a week. I can just pull it out and use it to make crescent rolls, calzones etc.

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
