2 Ingredient Dough Crescent Rolls

Points: 3 (per roll)
2 Ingredient Dough Crescent Rolls

These are not really "flaky" like a traditional croissant, but they are very soft and the cheese helps keep the dough layered during baking. I got some nice air pockets in these. I used light mozzarella for this batch, but you can use whatever cheese you want (adjust the nutritionals accordingly). Recipe makes 8 crescent rolls.

 

If you're into 2 ingredient dough, you may want to buy a Dough Cutter. It makes it really easy to cut the dough, scrape stuff off the counter and lift the dough from the work surface to the baking sheet.

Total Cook/Prep time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fat-free greek yogurt
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 8 oz. shredded light mozzarella cheese
  • 1 scrambled egg (used as a wash)

Directions

Preheat oven to 400

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper

Mix the yogurt and flour in a bowl until a ball of dough forms

Place it on the work surface

Using a rolling pin, roll it out into a thin round circle shape

Sprinkle the cheese onto the dough

Cut the dough into 8 triangles (see video)

Starting with the widest side, roll each triangle up and place it on the baking sheet

Brush each roll with a coating of the scrambled egg

Bake for about 25 minutes, or until golden brown

When finished baking, brush them again with the egg wash to make them shiny
