Gluten Free Crescent Rolls

 I have been on a mission to find a gluten free Crescent Roll for a few recipes (even laughed at a few of my attempts in my Have to Laugh post). This recipe turned out great. They were soft and flavorful. I will continue on looking for more recipes but this one will do until I find the perfect one. I know one of the ingredients seems odd and I turned my nose at first, however a ton of recipes I found used it. Give it a try — you will be surprised!
Here is what you need:
  • 1/4 cup butter (softened)
  • 3/4 cup cottage cheese (curd cheese or ricotta cheese- do not use low fat)
  • 1 cup gluten free flour (all purpose mix )
  • 1/2 tsp guar gum (or 1 tsp xanthan gum)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder (or mix 1/4 tsp cream of tartar with 1/2 tsp baking soda)
  • 2 tsp sugar
  1. Using an electric mixer or blender, mix together the butter and cottage cheese until well blended
  2. add the dry ingredients and mix until a dough ball forms (the dough will be crumbly at first so you may need to knead the dough into a ball)
  3. wrap the dough in a cling wrap and chill for 2-3 hrs
  4. Preheat oven to 350
  5. on a floured surface (or between 2 layers of good quality baking paper or cling wrap), roll dough into a 14 inch circle.
  6. Cut the dough into 8 triangles
  7. Roll each triangle from the wide end to the tip and turn the ends to form the crescent shape
  8. Place the rolled crescents on a greased baking sheet and bake for 20-30 minutes until golden (I brushed mine with melted butter after 15 minutes)
My kids loved these. Before rolling them you can add a slice of cheese and a hot dog and then roll them up for a delicious take on pigs in a blanket. Another treat would be to roll up a slice of ham and cheese in them before cooking as well.
Enjoy!
