WHAT’S CRESCENT DOUGH?
The crescent roll recipes featured on this page use a readymade crescent dough manufactured by the Pillsbury company in the United States.
Crescent roll dough is a flour-based dough made with butter and yeast.
The dough is thinly rolled, spread with butter, and folded over several times.
In the United States, you can buy crescent roll dough in a tube and sheet form. However, it is available everywhere in the world.
When baked, the dough becomes crisp and flaky on the outside and soft on the inside.
Tips For Kneading Dough In A Mixer
If the thought of hand kneading dough has put you off making bread, have you considered kneading dough in a mixer?
A stand mixer does all the hard work for you and is not as messy as kneading by hand. However, there are a few things that you should consider when kneading dough in a mixer:
1. CAN YOUR MACHINE HANDLE BREAD DOUGH?
Check the mixers instruction manual to be certain that dough can be mixed in the machine, as not every machine can do this.
Also, ensure that the motor on the machine has enough power to handle the dough. If it can’t you run the risk of burning out your machine.
I have two stand mixers my first one is 375 watts and I would not even consider using it for bread dough as the motor is just not powerful enough for heavy bread doughs.
Our second machine has a much bigger motor of 1200 watts and can handle bread dough with up to 1 kg of flour.
