Sweet Vanilla Crescents layered with Sugar
- dry instant yeast
- vanilla extract
2. Pour 1 1/2 cups milk into the bread maker bowl or into a bowl of a mixer, add salt, sugar, eggs, butter, the risen yeast mixture, butter, vanilla extract, and flour in that order. Put the bread maker into the dough cycle, allowing the dough to be kneaded and then risen. Or just put your mixer on to low speed and let the ingredients come together. When they resemble dough, allow the mixer to knead it for 20 minutes or until the dough comes off the sides of the bowl leaving it clean. Cover with a cloth and set into draft-free, warm place to rise (about 1+ hour).
Now go ahead and make them! But even if you don’t, don’t forget to add them to your Pinterest boards, or save them to your Facebook page by sharing!

A homemade sugared crescent recipe made with a soft and airy dough and a delicious vanilla and sugar coating!
For the Dough
- 2 cups milk
- 1 Tbsp dry instant yeast
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cups sugar
- 1 stick butter 112 grams, melted
- 5 cups flour
- 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
- 9 Tbsp sugar
Combine 1/2 cup milk and 1 tablespoon dry instant yeast. Stir. Leave for 5-10 minutes to rise.
Pour 1 1/2 cups milk into the bread maker bowl or into a bowl of a mixer, add a dash of salt, 3/4 cups sugar, 2 eggs, 1 stick butter, the risen yeast mixture, 1 Tbsp vanilla extract, and 5 cups flour in that order. Put the bread maker into the dough cycle, allowing the dough to be knead and then risen. Or just put your mixer onto low speed and let the ingredients come together. When they resemble dough, allow the mixer to knead it for 20 minutes or until the dough comes off the sides of the bowl leaving it clean. Cover with cloth and set into draft free, warm place to rise (about 1+ hour).
Once the dough cycle is over and the dough (if using the bread maker), or the dough is risen (if using a mixer), punch down the dough. Pour double tablespoons of oil onto your working surface and spread the oil all over with your hand. Remove the dough onto your working surface and bring all ends towards the center, to make it into a neat ball. Then put the dough ball, tucked ends down, smooth surface up, and make it into a log. Cut in 3 equal pieces. Shape each into a ball, and set it smooth side up to rest.
Whisk 2 eggs together. Add 1 tablespoon water and whisk again. Set aside.
Turn oven to 350°F. Set baking rack in the middle. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Roll the dough ball as thin as you can into a circle. Lightly sprinkle the dough with about 3 tablespoons sugar. Cut diagonally 5-6 times, as shown on the picture. Then roll the crescents starting with the thicker end and rolling towards the thin end. Place shaped crescents onto parchment lined baking sheet, end down, about 2-3 inches apart. Allow them to rise for about 15-30 minutes until almost double in size. Brush with egg mixture.
Bake crescents until golden in color. About 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool before eating.

Hi Marina, so excited to make these today. Reading through recipe it says to add salt but i doesn’t say how much? Thanks for your help! Love making your recipes!
Hi Luda, just add a pinch of salt to balance out the flavors. Thank you so much for your kind comment~!
I love these! Made them so many times already but I have a question. Have u ever had a problem with the sugar melting during the last rise or while baking and although they taste great they are sticky and sometimes get burned on the bottom. Any ways to avoid that? Thank you I love your recipes!
Yum, these look so delicious. What kind of flour did you use?
Thank you Diana, I used All purpose, Canadian 🙂
Thank you for including bread machine instructions. Just got a new one and I’m excited to make these this weekend!!!
Looks like something I gotta make right away!! I love your detailed pictures. Thank you and best wishes on your schooling
Thanks Marina! you guys have been asking for step by step pictures, so I am doing my best))
They look soooo good, may I ask you what kind of filing did you use for them.
These ones are not filled with anything. You just sprinkle the sugar onto the dough before rolling. They CAN be with anything though 🙂
Wow, those look really good!
Thank you! They really are:)
