You probably wonder is it really easy to make the crescent rolls? It is, but just the waiting for the dough to rise is the hard part. :-). In the the West, particularly in the US, you can just buy the dough in the grocery store and ready to bake. The crescent dough was made by Pillsbury. Unfortunately here in the Philippines it’s very hard to get any Pillsbury product. Since me and my family are into crescent rolls. I have to do some researching on the net for a good recipe. I found one that I tried and it’s good.
Golden Crescent Rolls Recipe:
- 3 teaspoon active dry yeast
- 3/4 cup warm water (I microwave for 30 seconds)
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon iodized or kosher salt
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 4 cups all purpose flour
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- Hot dogs (cook hot dogs first before putting inside the crescent)
- Dissolve the yeast in the warm water.
- Stir in sugar, eggs, salt, butter and the 2 cups of flour. Add yeast to the flour mixture. Beat until smooth. Add in the remaining flour and mix it well until smooth. Scrape the dough from side of bowl, knead dough, then cover it and let rise in a warm place until double the size around 1 1/2 hours.
- Punch down dough. Divide in half. Roll each half into a 12 inch circle ( it doesn’t have to be perfect circle). brush with butter, cut into wedges (10-15 wedges). Put hot dog in the dough on the wider side. Roll up the dough on the hot dog. Place the rolls with the small end under on the greased baking sheet. Cover with cling wrap and let it rise until double in size, about an hour.
- Bake at 205°C for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Brush tops with butter when come out from the oven.
*** You can put anything you like inside the dough. It can be ***
- Hot dog
- pepperoni and pizza sauce (just like pizza)
- And many more!
Have fun making!!!
My family really likes eating biscuits. As you know living here in the Philippines we don’t have those Pillsbury frozen products on our supermarkets here like what the supermarket in the West have. If they have here it’s just so limited. So to keep up with some food that my family are kind of used to when we lived in the States. With the net nowadays I can cook anything even with the ingredients in the Philippines sometimes are limited, still I can cook it. Lol
Drop Biscuits Recipe:
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon sugar (if you want sweeter put more sugar)
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt/kosher salt/iodized salt
- 1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese (the grated one that sold in the store is good too)
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 1 cup whole milk (I used slim milk here in the Philippines and it’s good too)
- Preheat oven to 400°C
- In a large mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and cheese. Whisk to combine well. Add the melted butter and milk and stir to combine.
- Prepare cookie sheets, grease or brush with butter.
- Drop biscuits using the spoon to make a rounded form and place in a oiled cookie sheets and place it in the oven for 12 or so minutes, until biscuits are golden brown. Enjoy

Since Thanksgiving is coming up soon in the States, I am gearing up for the feast. Ever since living back here in the Philippines we do celebrate every year. We just celebrate on a different day (Saturday) since no holidays for the the kids here on the Thanksgiving day Thursday.
I’ve been cooking some food that usually had squash ingredients with it. Trying really some new stuff too on Thanksgiving day. We found this recipe on the net for cookies and been cooking for a few years now with this recipe. The main ingredients was the pumpkin. Well since we don’t have pumpkin here in Philippines I substituted it with squash. Some stores carry nowadays but it’s not often though. Quite honestly, I can’t even tell the difference between the two. It just taste like pumpkin to me. Everybody in the house loves the squash cookies. Really yummy.
Squash – Pumpkin Cookie Recipe:

- Using tablespoon drop onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until the edges are firm. Let it cool at the cookie sheets for 2-3 minutes. Then transfer to the wire racks to cool completely.
