Dairy & Egg Free Crescent Rolls Recipe


If you want to be the hit of your next holiday celebration,

you should carve aside one evening to make these amazing, melt-in-your-mouth homemade crescent rolls.

I grew up on these babies,

and they are a part of almost every childhood memory I have.

But when my son was diagnosed with milk and egg allergies,

I thought for sure these would be out for us.

And they were for a couple years until I learned how to use flax seed for eggs.

It was a holiday miracle that first Thanksgiving that my son got to eat the famous family rolls.

And my husband was beyond ecstatic…

I think he married me for these rolls, really.

Again, I’m not going to beat around the bush on this…

these do take a time commitment.

Like hours and hours because of waiting for dough to rise twice, rolling out three batches, etc.

But it’s worth it!

I have also wrapped dairy-free Hebrew National Hotdogs in the dough before cooking the rolls,

and that worked awesome.

We all enjoy sweet pig-in-the-pockets!

Now roll up your sleeves and get to work.

You won’t regret it!

Crescent Roll Recipe Dairy Egg Free

Dairy-Free, Egg-Free Crescent Rolls


3/4 cup dairy-free milk
1 cup sugar
1 stick dairy-free butter
2 room temp eggs or 2 flax eggs
2 cakes of yeast
4-5 cups flour


Put 1 cup sugar and 1 stick of dairy-free butter at room temp in a deep bowl.

I like to use my Kitchen Aid mixing bowl after heating it with warm water.

In another bowl, beat 2 room temperature eggs well or make 2 flax eggs.

Dissolve 2 cakes of yeast in 3/4 cup of luke warm water.

Scald 3/4 cups dairy-free milk over stove and add to bowl with sugar and butter. Stir until butter melts.

Add eggs or flax eggs and dissolved yeast into bowl with dairy-free butter, sugar, and milk.

Add and knead in 4-5 cups of flour until texture is pliable.  If using Kitchen Aid, use dough hook to incorporate and knead the flour into the mixture.

Once mixed together, place dough into a medium sized buttered bowl.  Cover with clean towel.  Let raise in a warm place.

After raising the first time, poke the dough and let it fall.

Place dough on a clean surface covered with flour and knead.

Put the dough back into the bowl.

Cover dough again and let it rise a second time in a warm place.

After raised a second time, poke the dough and place it onto a clean surface with a little flour.

Heat oven to 325 degrees.

Separate dough into three parts.

With each part, roll out into a circle and butter with softened dairy-free margarine.

Cut each rolled out section like a pie, using a clean pizza cutter.

Roll each section into a crescent roll.

Bake at 325 until golden brown.  Usually about 10-15 minutes.

Enjoy hot with dairy-free butter and maybe even some of your favorite jam. 

To store, let cool and store in an airtight container. 

We hope you enjoy these dairy-free crescent rolls as much as we do!
