Getting Creative With Crescents
Because what isn’t good wrapped in a flaky baked Pillsbury crescent?
The perfect side for any Italian meal, these crescent rolls are stuffed with mozzarella and coated in a seasoned butter before baking to gooey, cheesy, flaky food perfection. Spice them up by adding pepperoni or sopressata and don’t serve without a side of warm marinara sauce!
Packed with buffalo-sauce drenched chicken fingers and provolone, this is the perfect appetizer, lunch or dinner for those who like it hot. Made easy with pre-made chicken tenders like Tyson, serve these up with ranch, blue cheese or a cool avocado aioli.
Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner, these crescents combine a food-world favorite, ham and cheese. Ready in 30 minutes, all you need is some thin sliced ham, your favorite cheese slices, and a roll of crescents. This recipe goes the extra mile by brushing the roll ups with an onion-butter mix before baking too – yum!
For the same reason we love mozzarella sticks, we love these mac and cheese breadsticks. While the recipe calls for pizza dough, crescents will still get the job done on these bad-boys. The trick here is to use frozen macaroni and cheese that you can cut to a size that the dough can wrap around it completely. Sprinkled with olive oil, parmesan and Italian seasoning before baking, these sticks make an award-worthy appetizer anytime.
Mix up bacon bits, chopped jalapeño and some scallion with cream cheese and spread it in crescent dough, roll them up and prepare to experience foodie heaven. The melty cream cheese, salty bacon and spicy jalapeño create a 360º flavor experience on their own, but you can have even more fun by playing with what cheeses you use or adding a teaspoon of your favorite seasoning to the mix like cajun or barbecue!
Perfect for when you are in the mood for the bright flavors of spring, these crescents are as easy as: mixing raspberries with sugar and cornstarch then wrap in crescent, bake according to package directions, drizzle with confectioner sugar-lemon juice mixture and GO TO TOWN!
It’s amazing what butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, sugar and a little bit of milk can do! For these cinnabun-meets-croissant simply mix your butter, brown sugar and cinnamon, spread it out on the dough, roll up your crescents and bake. While baking, mix your sugar-vanilla-salt-milk glaze to drizzle all over your rolls before serving and enjoy warm!
All the flavors of the family-favorite funfetti cake in a hand-held crescent roll? Yes please! For these rolls all you need is cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and rainbow sprinkles for the filling. The glaze is simple – just powdered sugar, milk and vanilla. Top with more sprinkles before serving for a sweet treat or special-occasion surprise!
Chocolate and peanut butter ????
Nutella and peanut butter ???? ???? ????
Anytime the hazelnut spread Nutella is involved, the odds are good you’re going to have a good time. As if putting hazelnut butter and peanut butter wasn’t enough, this recipe also adds banana and marshmallow inside the crescent. The result after 15 minutes in the oven is a melty and super-satisfying indulgence you can enjoy for breakfast or dessert.
As the easiest crescent recipe on our list, simply wrap your favorite sandwich cookie in a crescent (chocolate chips or other candy optional) and bake. The cookie gets soft and tender as the dough cooks around it just like a fried oreo! The only thing this recipe is missing to us? Some powdered sugar on top. ????
