I used this wonderful recipe to make a hamburger bun for dinner and a few danish. The first thing a friend (who is frequently a Guinea pig for my cooking) said was how delicious the bread was on this danish compared to the ones I made last week. The dough is simple and forgiving. I used all milk, no water since I use 1% milk. I don't think I will every buy Pillsbury crescents again. I saved half the dough. I will have to make a crescent for breakfast. This dough is just a bit wet, if it is sticky for you, just knead in a bit more flour. LOVE IT!!! It is so flexible for making so many different things. The dough refrigerated well. The next day I made a couple crescents with it. The lesson, make the triangle skinny and very long to get the best look. Also, the brushing butter does not have to be melted....it can just be spread if it is very soft.
