Copycat Pillsbury Crescent Rolls

Crescent rolls are delicious!  I have used them to make so many different things that they have become a staple around here.  But, I just can’t bring myself to purchase the cans despite the efforts of the adorable dough boy.

Here is a frugaltastic copycat: (This recipe is equal to 2 cans of Pillsbury crescent rolls)

1/3 Cup lukewarm Water

2/3 cup lukewarm milk

1/3 cup softened butter

1/3 cup sugar

1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp active dry yeast

3 1/3 cup flour

2-3 Tablespoons of butter to rub on top when they are done (optional…but yummy!)

Dump all your dry ingredients into the bread machine first.  Then pour in your water, milk and butter.

Roll them up and put them on a baking sheet.  Let rise in a draft free place for about 30 minutes.
