    How do you identify “lower protein” flour? I usually use King Arthur or Bob's Red Mill flours – do you know if they have one? I have never seen this lable on a package before.

    These look fabulous! I always avoid the storebought crescents, but never thought to make my own. Adding these to my baking list.

    I've always been afraid to make Crescent Rolls. It seems so complicated.

    Your dough is stunning. My husband loves Crescent Rolls so I will try these. Love the idea of keeping some in the freezer.

    Hi, Tessa! I'm trying to translate the measures: 16 tablespoons (2 sticks of butter) are 8 ounces, more or less? thanks πŸ™‚
    Super soft and fresh dough!

    Could I use whole milk or will it mess up the recipe?
