Homemade cheese stuffed crescent rolls just out of the oven, smelling delicious as cheese is melting inside of them. Isn’t it mouthwatering even to think about them?Cheese stuffed crescent rolls - SunCakeMom

I can say that officially the cheese stuffed crescent rolls are my family’s all time favourite snack. It doesn’t matter how much I bake, surely nothing will be left on the plate by the end of the day.
I know you might think why hassle with it if you could simply buy rolls in the supermarket but as soon as your creation is out of the oven, you never want to taste any other rolls but the homemade ones.

So here’s my recipe:


  • 600 g flour (Sometimes I use flour integral instead of plain flour. Equally delicious)
  • 100ml milk
  • 3 grams yeast
  • Half teaspoon of sugar or fructose
  • 150 grams butter
  • 125 grams plain unsweetened yogurt
  • 2 eggs


  • 50 grams grated cheese (Gouda or Edam)


  • An egg yolk
  • Salt

And here’s how you make cheese dinner rolls to get your family and yourself the perfect snack of any day:

1. Place half of the milk and the sugar in a cup. Stir and sprinkle with yeast.
Let stand until foamy for a couple of minutes.
2. Whilst you are waiting, measure and put the rest of the ingredients (except the cheese) in a large bowl. When it’s ready, pour in yeast mixture too. Make the dough.
3. After you finished with kneading it, you don’t need to wait for it to raise.
4. Divide the dough into 4 balls, set them somewhere warm cover 3 and you can start working with the fourth straight away.
5. Put the ball in the middle of the desk and roll it flat into a shape of a circle.Rolling out - Cheese stuffed crescent rolls - SunCakeMom
