- 2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour– 1 tablespoon sugar– 1 teaspoon xanthan gum– 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder– ½ teaspoon salt– ½ cup cold unsalted butter, cut into small cube– 1 cup plain Greek yogurt– 1 large egg, beaten (for egg wash)
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the gluten-free all-purpose flour, sugar, xanthan gum, baking powder, and salt. Add the cold butter cubes to the dry ingredients and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
Add the Greek yogurt to the mixture and stir until a dough forms. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead it a few times until smooth. Roll out the dough into a circle and cut it into eight wedges. Starting from the wide end, roll each wedge into a crescent shape.
Place the crescent rolls on the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between each roll. Brush the tops of the rolls with the beaten egg to give them a golden finish.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes or until the crescent rolls are golden brown. Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy these Buttery, Gluten-Free Crescent Rolls as a delightful accompaniment to your favorite meals or as a stand-alone treat.
