Hands-on time 25 mins
Total time 1 hr, 40 mins
Yield Makes 1 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 (1/4-oz.) envelope active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water (105° to 115°)
  • 3 to 3 1/2 cups all-purpose baking mix
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • All-purpose flour

How to Make It

  1. Combine yeast and warm water in a 1-cup measuring cup; let stand 5 minutes. Combine 3 cups baking mix and sugar in a large bowl; gradually stir in yeast mixture.

  2. Turn dough out onto a floured surface, and knead, adding additional baking mix (up to 1/2 cup) as needed, until dough is smooth and elastic (about 10 minutes).

  3. Roll dough into a 12-inch circle; cut circle into 12 wedges. Roll up wedges, starting at wide end, to form a crescent shape; place, point sides down, on a lightly greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.

  4. Preheat oven to 425°. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden.

  5. Note: To make rolls in a heavy-duty electric stand mixer, prepare as directed in Step Beat dough at medium speed, using dough hook attachment, about 5 minutes, beating in 1/2 cup additional baking mix, if needed, until dough leaves the sides of the bowl and pulls together, becoming soft and smooth. Proceed with recipe as directed in Step We tested with Bisquick All-Purpose Baking Mix.

  6. To Make Ahead: Rolls may be frozen up to 2 months. Bake at 425º for 5 minutes; cool completely (about 30 minutes). Wrap in aluminum foil, and freeze in an airtight container. Thaw at room temperature on a lightly greased baking sheet; bake at 425° for 7 to 8 minutes or until golden.
