Prepackaged Crescent rolls-Favorite
Give me some of your best uses for pop in fresh crescent rolls.
I love to make the disappearing marshmellows or what we call chicken roll ups with chicken and cream cheese.
My Girl Scouts used to love making cinnamon rolls out of these: Divide into 2 rectangles, spread with soft butter, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, roll up, slice and bake. Surprisingly yummy!
Guilty secret - and great for snax for kids as a treat - slice them in half lengthwise making them acutely angled, and roll a cheddar smoky link in each triangle from the wide end up to the point. Bake 8-10 minutes at whatever temp the package says. Pigs in blankets. I say they're for kids but the adults always eat 'em, too.
Open two cans of Crescent rolls. Lay the dough out end to end to make a long piece then mash all the performations together to make a long solid piece. Cover with Nut Filling. Roll across the short dimension. Curl the roll into a snail shape. Bake about 30 minutes. Drizzle with icing (powdered sugar, water, maple extract). NUT FILLING: In Cuisinart grind up 1/2-1 lb walnuts then add grated rind of a lemon, 1 cup sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, and the slightly beaten white of an egg. This coffee cake is surprisingly good and takes about five minutes to make.
They make a beautiful and delicious crust for Beef Wellington. And nobody ever knows it came out of a pop open can.
Roll around Spanokopita filling for Spinach puffs, or make these in muffin cups.
Similar to the marshmallow puffs, I do a sweetened cream cheese filling with cinnamon and vanilla. Other additions to the filling I've tried include chopped dates, chopped apricots, chopped dried pears, and pistachios.
