Buttery Crescents

I learned this recipe 28 years ago, when I was a new bride and my grandmother taught me how to make these rolls. They're crusty outside and tender inside. -Lynne Peterson, Salt Lake City, Utah

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm whole milk (110° to 115°)
