homemade dinner rolls best butter crescent recipe
these naughty butter rolls are usually my contribution to a holiday meal. 
i don’t mind making them, though in large quantities, it is a bit of time…
but mostly cause it means i get to be the one to eat half of them while hot,
rub in all the extra butter on the the dough i want with my bare hands,
and dip them the minute they come out in hot butter and giggle like paula deen while i shovel on more butter…. don’t fear the butter!
{i have posted these before, but they looked so much better this time that i wanted to update the picture… since you know, it’s more about the picture nowadays anyway… unless you are the type to actually come back and make these after pinning them to your “i must make this tomorrow” board. 
ps, i we like to call these “award winning” cause i did win a pretty big bake off with these babies. though, i served them hot, with a side of melted butter. 
…those poor {other} breads, didn’t stand a chance….

tips and secrets:
*    I actually sprinkle on some sugar here. sue me.
**  There is no such thing as too much butter… so don’t even think about skimpin!
*** If you don’t have a pizza slicer, it is easiest to cut from the middle to the outside with a sharper knife.
**** I even go further and usually use parchment
