These buttery, flaky rolls have a savory biscuit-like quality.  They are sure to be a hit in your low-sodium household!


  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons yeast (2 packages)
  • 3 tablespoons warm water
  • 1/3 cup warm 2% milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, softtened (divided)
  • 1 egg


Step 1

In a large mixing bowl, combine warm water, yeast, and sugar. Allow to sit for 5 minutes.

Step 2

Add milk, eggs, flour, and 2 tablespoons butter. Knead until dough is smooth and elastic.

Step 3

Grease a second large bowl. Place dough in bowl and turn to coat. Cover with a damp towel and place in a warm area. Allow dough to rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Step 4

Place dough on floured surface and roll out into a 16-inch circle. Spread 2 tablespoons of butter over the surface of the circle.

Step 5

Slice the circle of dough into 16 equal triangles (like a pizza). Roll each triangle into a crescent, starting with the wider end of the triangle.

Step 6

Place each crescent on a greased cookie sheet, with the narrowest end of the triangle facing down on the cookie sheet.

Step 7

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Step 8

Cover the rolls with a damp towel and place in a warm area. Allow rolls to rise for 20 minutes. Melt the remaining butter and brush over the tops of the rolls.

Step 9

Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack before serving.

We used our KitchenAid mixer with the dough hook attachment to knead the dough in this recipe. We love our KitchenAid mixer, it makes low-sodium living a snap!
