Kay’s Market crescent rolls
Out of this world

The next time you look up at the night sky and see a crescent moon, it might put you in mind of more than astronomy. After a long quest to find crescent rolls that are delicious, daring, and devoid of artificial preservatives, I finally found happiness with a batch of Kay’s Market’s Gourmet Crescent Rolls.

Though small in size, each soft roll is big in flavor. Made from an old family recipe, the crescents contain a bit of shortening, which adds to their fluffiness. They arrive each Monday morning at Kay’s Market in Watertown, and they usually sell out by evening, or by Tuesday at the latest. Heavenly right out of the bag, or cut in half and topped with some earthly delight.

Gourmet Crescent Rolls are available at Kay’s, located at 594 Mt. Auburn Street, in Watertown; $2.49 for a bag of six. Call (617) 923-0523.
