This is a wonderful yeast dough that is layered with margarine (you can substitute butter),folded over and rolled into a crescent shape. This recipe is made with juice to keep it Mezonos. It is delicious served plain with butter or cream cheese. You can add any filling inside or a jam glaze on the outside for different variations. This recipe has a flakier taste, similar to a French croissant. I like to make this for before and after a fast. It freezes very well.

    40-45 pieces








  • 5 cup Flour

  • 4 oz margarine-1 stick

  • 1½ oz fresh yeast

  • 4 eggs

  • 1 cup orange juice

  • ½ cup sugar

  • ¾ tsp salt

  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar

  • - filling:

  • 1 cup flour

  • 12 oz margarine-3 sticks

  1. Mix in mixer dry ingredients- flour,salt,yeast, and sugar. Add 1 stick margarine, eggs and orange juice. Mix well. Add more flour if dough is too sticky.

  2. Place in floured bowl and let rise 1/2 hour covered.

  3. Roll out dough into a rectangle shape. Smear 3/4 of filling(3 sticks margarine plus 1 cup flour mixed) and fold dough over in a third. Refrigerate a few hours or overnight.

  4. Divide dough into 4 parts. Roll each out into a circle. Smear a little of filling unto each circle-just not in the center.

  5. Cut each circle into 8 or 16 pieces-depending on size you want. Roll up each, from thicker part to thinner part. Shape into moon shape.

  6. Cover and let rise for 1/2 hour. This can be brushed with an egg wash or can be baked without the egg wash. I like them shiny, so I egg wash it. You can add any toppings-sesame,poppy or bake plain.

  7. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes-until brown.
