Thanks for posting this really eassys recipe. I made the sweet version (adding in the vanilla essence as suggested). Kids loved it with the leftover cranberry jelly that I had made for our Christmas brunch and a spot of whipped cream that I had on hand. Only "drawback" was that I was expecting the rolls to rise a bit more than they did. But aside from that, the rolls were quite tasty!
My celiac husband stated these tasted just like regular cresent rolls. I'm not on a gluten free diet so I have had real cresent rolls recently and I thought these tasted very good, but I wouldn't go so far as to say they were the same. I noticed the flavor of the cottage cheese. We had the best success with a Nearly Normal flour blend. Whenever we have extra cottage cheese on hand we will definately be making more of these.
Thanks Jubes great recipe! These turned out very good! I wrote the recipe wrong and only used 1/2 tsp of xanthan gum but they rolled out very nice. I used 3/4 cup thai rice flour and 1/4 cup tapioca for the gluten free flour mix. I also increased the baking powder to 1 tsp since someone mentioned that they did not rise. I omitted the vanilla because I used the dough to make pigs in a blanket. I really love the use of cottage cheese it increases the protein. Most gluten free breads lack protein. If I were making theme sweet I would definetly increase the sugar to a few tablespoons. I really like this dough I am considering adding an egg to the dough in the future and making some rolls because they were nice and soft and a little crusty on the outside.
This recipe is AMAZING!!! I've been gluten free for a year now and I have missed crescent rolls so much. Even my non-gluten free husband loved them. I used the cottage cheese, not ricotta, and no vanilla because they were part of a savory dish. Unlike what another user said, we did not taste the cottage cheese at all. I made the dough the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight so they would be ready in the morning, and that worked out well. I definitely suggest rolling it between some good cling wrap, and have some extra flour on hand to prevent sticking. When there were a few mins left cooking (I cooked for a total of 25 mins) I sprayed the rolls with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray, which gave them a golden, buttery topping. Will definitely be using this recipe again.
Wonderful recipe!! My daughter and mother are gluten intolerant so I am always looking for recipes to replace "traditional" gluten products with. was skeptical when I saw this recipe because it was simple, but the cresents turned out great. I am excited we can have cresents again at Thanksgiving.
