Whole Wheat Crescent Rolls

This is an easy-to-make whole wheat crescent roll that is great when spread with butter or jam, or made into a sandwich.

Cook Time

Prep time: 2 hours 30 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 2 hours 50 min
Yields: 16 crescent rolls


  • 2 1/4 tsp dry yeast
  • 1 cup water, warm
  • 7 tbsp liquid egg whites
  • 4 tbsp milk powder
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 cups white flour
  • 1 1/3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup margarine, frozen

Freeze Your Margarine

Place 1 cup of margarine into the freezer the night before you want to back these crescent rolls. Margarine needs to be frozen to grate properly.


  1. Mix water and dry yeast, and set aside.
  2. Mix together flours, milk powder, salt, and sugar.
  3. Using a grater, grate frozen margarine into flour, stirring occasionally to coat pieces.
  4. Pour in yeast mixture and 6 tbsp of egg whites.
  5. Mix lightly to form a dough ball, cover and place in freezer for 1 hour.
  6. Turn cold dough onto a floured surface and lightly knead for a minute or two.
  7. Roll dough out into a 20"x12" rectangle.
  8. Use a pizza cutting wheel to cut the dough in half length wise to form 2 -10"x12" pieces. Cut wedges with 3" wide bases from each half yielding 8 pieces from each half.
  9. Roll wedges starting at wide end and place on parchment lined baking sheet point side down and turn ends in slightly.
  10. Set aside to rise for 1-1 1/2 hours, until doubled in size.
  11. Brush tops of crescent rolls with 1 tbsp of egg whites.
  12. Preheat oven to 400 F and bake for 5 minutes. Lower heat to 350 F for additional 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
  13. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack.
