Crescent rolls with jam recipe



  • 2 cups wheat flour (280g)
  • cup powdered sugar (45g)
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 200 g unsalted butter
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tbsp yoghurt
  • salt


  • 200 g jam
  • egg white
  • sugar for sprinkling


  • Whisk the butter with powdered sugar and egg yolk (save the whites for glazing the crescent rolls). Add salt, yogurt and sifted flour with baking powder. Mix the whole mixture and knead to a smooth dough.
    2 cups wheat flour, ⅓ cup powdered sugar, 200 g unsalted butter, 1 egg yolk, 2 tbsp yoghurt, salt, ½ tsp baking powder
  • Wrap the dough in foil and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Take the dough out of the refrigerator and divide it into 4 equal parts. Roll out each part and cut triangles out of them (it is better to sprinkle the countertop with flour beforehand, so that the dough does not stick to it).
  • At the base of the triangle put a teaspoon of jam and wrap the crescent rolls. To make the dough stick together better you can brush it with water.
    200 g jam
  • Put the wrapped crescent rolls on a baking paper. Brush them with egg white and sprinkle with sugar.
    egg white, sugar for sprinkling
  • Put them in a preheated oven at 175 °C and bake for 20 minutes. Enjoy!

You can replace the yogurt with sour cream then the crescent rolls will be more crispy, or you can skip the addition of yogurt altogether. The dough will then be less elastic and more difficult to roll out, but the cookies will still be delicious.

  • Roll out the dough and divide it into isosceles triangles,
  • Put a teaspoon of jam at the base of the triangle,
  • Brush the rest of the dough with water so that the dough sticks together well,
  • Wrap the dough from the base of the triangle towards the top,
  • Seal the ends of the formed roll,
  • Wrap the ends of the roll to the center, so that it forms a croissant.

If you are still not sure how to do it, watch the step-by-step video on how to make crescent rolls – see above.

Before baking, I brush the top of the crescent rolls with egg white, which I did not use to make the dough. Thanks to this, nothing is wasted, the sugar that is sprinkled on the top sticks easily to the dough, and the pastries are golden and shiny after baking. If, on the other hand, you do not want to brush your rolls with egg white, you can replace them with a whole new egg, only egg yolk or milk. You can also skip this step – it’s not absolutely necessary. In this case, lightly press the sugar into the croissants so that it does not fall off of them.

If you don’t want to sprinkle the crescent rolls with sugar, you can quickly and easily prepare an easy icing made of powdered sugar, hot water and lemon juice, or a thick and white royal icing with egg whites (remember to wash and rinse the egg with boiling water beforehand!). You can also sprinkle the pastries with powdered sugar or make a chocolate glaze. They also taste great without any addition!

Of course! If you have made too much dough you can freeze it! This way you’ll always have a snack ready to make for unannounced guests.
