I made these garlic rosemary crescent rolls sometime last month, when I realized that I hadn’t baked any bread in a while. You all know I enjoy baking, but baking bread is something extra special for me. Maybe it is that I really like bread, or its just the magic of seeing dough rise up in the oven and fill the kitchen with that fantastic aroma of freshly baking bread.
Whatever the reason, I just got the feeling that I had to bake some crescent rolls bread then and there. I love pulling apart a crescent roll, and see the soft rolled up bread unravel. So I put together a recipe, got out the yeast, milk, yogurt, and the other ingredients only to find out I had run out of all purpose flour. All I had was whole wheat flour but I don’t usually make all whole wheat bread because no one in my home really likes it, except me.
This time, I didn’t have much choice as I had already made the rosemary garlic oil and dissolved the yeast. So I made the rolls with whole wheat flour and these are the best whole wheat crescent rolls I’ve eaten to date. They’re really soft and even my daughter who isn’t a fan of “healthy” bread, agreed they were very good.
Let me also take this opportunity to wish all who are celebrating Ganesh Chathurthi and Eid, a very happy festive weekend filled with fun and food with family and friends.
