Mini crescent rolls tutorial

I wasn't sure whether to share this recipe or not, because I don't have photos about the result. But since these little crescent rolls are very nice and super easy to make, I thought I would still share it with you. It's also a great substitute for bread, you can make mini sandwiches, or sometimes I like to fill it with cheese or pizza sauce. You can also put some cheese on top! 
So here is the recipe and the tutorial pictures. Photos this time are by the wonderful Filipa André

Mini crescent rolls

35 g all purpose flour
2,5 dl milk
half a sachet of instant yeast
2,5 dkg butter
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 egg yolk

Mix flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Melt butter in the microwave and mix it in as well. Add milk - it should be semi-warm - slowly, continously incorporating into the mixture with a wooden spoon. When it's starting to become a dough, put the wooden spoon away and start kneading with hand. Knead for a couple of minutes, then cover with a kitchen towel and let it rise in a warm place for an hour.
Divide the dough into 4 parts. Cover the rest, while you're working with one.
On a floured surface, roll the mini dough balls into a rectangle - it should be thin, around 4-5 mm. Half the rectangle along the longer side, and cut each sides into 2 quadrangles (leaving triangles on the top and bottom), then these into two triangles. Sounds complicated? It isn't, just have a look at the pictures and the gif!
Gently pull out the triangles, then roll it up from one of the corners, creating a mini crescent. If you are patient, let them rise for 20 minutes - until then, you can make more crescents.
Spread some egg yolk on the top with a kitchen brush, then bake on 180C for around 10-15 mins  - but that depends on the oven and the size of the crescents, so be careful at the first round.
